Taken at McWay Falls, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, Big Sur, California on March 21st, 2010
McWay Falls is one of the most iconic scenes along the incomparable Big Sur coast. And for good reason: the beauty of the place, with its 80-foot waterfall cascading down into a protected and inaccessible cove, is simply sublime. On Spring Solstice I was in a race against time as I drove down the winding Pacific Coast Highway, watching the sun sink lower and lower in the sky and wondering when I was actually going to get to the Falls. Finally, as the sun was dropping below the horizon I arrived at the cove and had just enough time to snap this shot as the fading light bathed the scene in pastel twilight glow.
