Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is about 12 miles South of Big Sur on California State Route 1.
This image is made from 20 consecutive 20 second exposures stacked to reduce noise. It is not a composite of separate exposures for the sky and the foreground.
The vista at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is fairy tale perfect even in broad daylight. One wouldn’t be surprised to see unicorns cavorting on the beach, jumping in the fog, dancing under rainbows. On a clear night, the stars and the surf get together and sing songs of magic and wonder.
