Beautiful light and colors Maria! We were hiking recently with our daughters from Point Lobos hoping to reach the Monastery Beach. We ended up on the cliff with a fence preventing us to reach the long and beautiful monastery beach. Do you know any secret gate how to get there from Point Lobos?

Now thats a great great shot, lovely colours, good composition, like this one more than your previous sloped tree post! I have some landscapes on mine, of a different kidn though, not much water/ocean/lake involved, few waterfalls, why dont you come check them out?
Congrats on the capture again!

Certainly another great image Maria, can I ask what time of day it was?

@Curly: Thank you, it was taken at 5:26 pm, on Dec 10, 2008.
I hope my camera time was right. Most of the times I fail to change the time according to the daylight saving time, but I believe that year was ok, since sun sets around 5 - 5:15 in December.
quel cile, quelle merveille, avec le rendu doux sur l'eau ces couleur, image de rêve.
Bravo et amitié

Awesome image Maria! I have never made an image worth showing from this beach but you certainly have. Was this recent? There have been some incredible skies lately over Pt. Lobos - especially the northern portion. Hope you are doing well!

@Don Smith: Don, it was taken Dec 10, 2008 5:26 pm. Have not been there in the last couple of weeks, but I could tell by the skies I see when driving back from work, that there must be some beautiful skies over Point Lobos, as well.
Unfortunately, today is raining just when I intended to go out...
I really admire how you process the water!
the mood is unsurpassable!

I agree with DOn and what really makes this image over the top super is the touches of light on the rocks in the foreground, a subtle but essential addition to this marvelous and breathtaking image. Just super, Maria! Doggone it, you have nailed it again ;-) - DJ
