Moonset, Garrapata Beach, Big Sur

This image is from last week in Big Sur. It was still dark when Don Smith and I led the group to Sobranes Point for the first sunrise of Don's Big Sur workshop. We were pleased to find a clear horizon that would enable us to follow the moon all the way to the ocean (by no means a sure thing on the coast).

Magnificent, Gary - I agree with Tracy, this image is full of eye candy from the beautiful rocks (I LOVE those central California coastal rocks) to the soft and colorful water, to that glorious moon which IS a lucky thing to witness on the coast - especially in the mornign - heavens!! This is so wonderufl and I really like how there is something to enjoy all throughout this frame..talk about a complete and completely balanced composition! Wow...Wishing you all the best sir! Denny
