    A fantastic night at McWay Falls, Big Sur, California. A must visit for anyone driving along California State Route 1. There are plenty of amazing views such as this that can take your breath away!

    This famous location at Big Sur is often photographed, but becomes more intriguing under the night sky. The long-exposure allows trees blowing in the wind to soften to a dreamy, brushed aesthetic, as the deep colors of the sky and ocean saturate the frame. The photo’s monotone, blue palette reinforces the calm of the night sky and allows the eye to wander from the tree-framed foreground to the streaking stars.

    I enjoy the light highlights in this shot;  the stars, the water circling the rocks and shoreline, the linear lines on the beach, the spots in the rocks, and the horizon. The angle you captured this from with the framing of the trees and the depth looking out toward the distance, gives this image a surreal feeling. Simply beautiful!
