Another photo from my very first trip to West Coast where I drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco in five days, not rushing and taking my time, trying to discover and capture beauty of California coast.
The first few days of my travel photography trip were not comfortable at all. It was chilly with extremely strong wind and at the times it was challenging to setup a tripod and keep it steady so I could take series of bracketed shots for HDR processing.
I arrived in town of Carmel early evening after completing the most interesting part of the drive: the Big Sur. And this when the weather suddenly changed. The wind was completely gone and it became very pleasant and warm , almost t-shirt warm.
I found myself at the north end of the Carmel City Park Beach. I was facing beautiful beach rocks illuminated by evening light with the sunset sky in the background and the legendary Pebble Beach golf course just behind me. It was perfect.
