The American Pacific coast offers a virtually unlimited number of
amazing photographic opportunities, and today's picture features one
of the most striking views to be found anywhere between the Mexican
and Canadian borders. Here is photographer Mitchell Tancio to tell
us about it:
"One of the gems of the breathtaking California coastline is the
Camera and settings used to capture this image:
Point Lobos area. Point Lobos is located just south of Monterey
the gorgeous town of Carmel. Point Lobos is a photographer's
characterized by restless, deep blue water crashing against
rocks. One could spend the whole day just sitting here
of all the beauty. More photos of Point Lobos can
here." Mitchell Tancio

Breathtaking indeed Mr. Tancio. What an outstanding image,
especially considering the fact that you used a whopping 10 stop ND.
You sir, are obviously a master.

Simply gorgeous!! You wrote: “One could spend the whole day just
sitting here in admiration of all the beauty.” If I lived near
there, that is exactly what I would do! Since I don’t live there,
your image allows me to sit and enjoy through your eyes. Thanks for
such a beautiful sight!
