Portal to Mendocino, Mendocino Beach, California
This 100+ foot long sea cave and arch is located near the center of town in Mendocino. There is a 30 foot wide hole in the top about halfway along and that allows a little extra light to get into the cave.
The only tricky part about creating this image was making sure that I did not overexpose the relatively bright cliffs seen through the arch. Usually this shot is not possible because there is too much contrast between the bright and dark areas of the frame. But the soft light about 10 minutes after sunset made this possible.
