McClures Point - Point Reyes, Marin County, California
McClures Beach is a difficult place to photograph because there are so many choices! To the right of the background rocks is the portion of the beach I showed previously. And as you can see, the light is much different over there. Sometimes it is better on one side than the other, so I ran back and forth repeatedly trying to decide what to do. The horizon was very bright so I used the rocky point to block the sun.
I have never quite seen light like this above a rock. And this looks exactly as it does on the camera's viewscreen. Then I waited for the waves to paint themselves in a pleasing way with a bit of dry golden sand in front.
