Another photo from Point Lobos State Reserve in California which is located a short distance from Monterey and Carmel. The day I took the featured photo I spent the afternoon exploring the southern part of the park. I was shooting from Pelican Point with a partial view of the beautiful Gibson Beach on the left side and with the mountains of the Big Sur in the background..
Shooting and Processing
Once again, I took 3 bracketed shots with the intention to merge multiple shots to HDR later in Photoshop but, I only needed a single RAW file to achieve the final result.
