"Flowing into the Ocean" McWay Falls at Sunset, Big Sur, California D818897
"Flowing Into the Ocean" McWay Falls, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park near Big Sur, California. The gentle waves at McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park were coming in while the sun was setting highlighting the rock face. This is a 1.6 second exposure of McWay falls near Big Sur in Northern California is one of my favorite places! So many people have no idea where this California Secret is located including all those people that DO make it to Big Sur! This California Waterfall that spills directly into the ocean is located about 25-30 minutes further South from Big Sur. With only a 5 minute walk from Highway One, this is almost one of the most accessible beautiful and tranquil spots in nature! While weekends in the spring and summer can be a little crowded, many times I have had this joy to myself. Ah.... so tranquil and refreshing to just hear the waves moving down below. The beach is NOT easily accessed and visitors are recommended to not venture down - getting up without proper gear isn't easy. Enjoy this amazing place and only take pictures. Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200 @122mm. 1.6 seconds, f/22, ISO 64 (I ramped this up to f/22 since I didn't have a filter handy to increase the exposure time).
