Each winter along the Big Sur Coast - a month before and after Winter Solstice - the sun makes it far enough south to shine through the arches at Pfeiffer Beach Park.
The weather has to cooperate with mostly clear skies - but this week the weather was perfect and the evening sunset provided a great light show. This is a location where you have to be patient and wait for the waves to approach and then adjust your settings for your desired shutter speed and use your camera as a tool to portray your feeling of the scene.
This is my view of the scene, and I used the settings on my camera to express what I envisioned.
I think all photographers get to walk through this arch on their way to Heaven!
