Sunset at Big Sur
Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, Big Sur, California
At Big Sur, one of the most dramatic coastlines in North America, the Santa Lucia Mountains plummet into the Pacific in a series of rocky cliffs. After photographing McWay Falls at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, I made my way out onto this cliff just south of the falls to catch the warm, fading light of sunset on the rocks. Climbing in flip-flops with camera in hand was not exactly what I set out to do, but it seemed to work out. This time. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
