Take Highway 1 sorth out of Santa Cruz past mile marker 26.40. Turn left into dirt turn off and follow to parking area. Follow trail down to Panther Beach and go through the hole in the rock to Hole in the Wall Beach. Go all the way to the south end of the beach, climb up the rocks, and go around the corner.
This shot was taken on the third night of a series of amazing sunsets in Santa Cruz, CA. As many of the best sunsets are, this one was a total surprise. Its light went from pretty to magnificent to spectacular in a 20-minute span. But what really caught my eye in this scene was not the light in the sky, but the golden light being reflected by the sand as the outgoing waves streamed back into the sea.
