Cynthia, no, this was taken in Big Sur, at a popular turn-out, not Pt. Lobos. I'm glad you liked it!
The #2 photo captures so much that I love in Big Sur and still is detailed. Parts of Mc Way, Anderson, Burns and Buck creek watersheds visible (is that a hint of waterfall through the trees?); sky, mountains, ocean, rocks, cliffs, beach, plus a wonderful variety of trees (though most originally planted); and beautiful lines and framing. Appropriately, Hwy 1 is there as a very small part of this whole. I love this shot! In it there are so many places to be, to imagine and to sense. Thank you so much for sharing it!
Love all of the photos, but especially #2 because of the size, the 2 thirds, 1 third perspective, and because the lighting is perfect. I can almost feel the dampness in the air, and I love the perspective that tells the story of the rugged coast (and even a bit of road) that continues on. The perspective actually draws viewers into the photo more deeply. Was this photo actually taken at Point Lobos?
Beautiful pictures, Kate! #2 hit me personally, especially because it really talks to me about why Big Sur is so very special on so many different levels of AWE:------ Infinite special coastal and mountain sights, variety of (beach + rocks + plant) topic depths, gutsy and so very typically Big Sur to me!
THANKS again for being there!
