Point Loma Cliffs at Sunset - Cabrillo National Monument

    Newer Older

    I took this photo the day after Christmas in Cabrillo National Monument on the Point Loma Peninsula. This is the "tide-pools" area of the point Loma Lighthouse Park, a short drive down the steep road to the right as you enter the park. It's crazy to think about the powerful wave that left that suspended boulder on the edge.

    This is a combination of 2 exposures (1 for the sky) - around 5 and 20 second exposures, but this time I didn't use Photomatix or any fancy HDR program; just 2 Photoshop layers and a gradient mask.

    You can buy prints here or see more of my photos.
