[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my second selection from Furlong Gulch on the Sonoma Coast. Sonoma Coast State Park/Beach is a beautiful stretch of coastline that includes long sandy beaches and rugged, rock laden beaches. It's some of the most dynamic, geologically blessed landscape in all of northern California. This time of year is a wonderful time to be out there and this evening did not disappoint.

Cloned out numerous spots on ND grad and sensor (I need to clean my sensor!). Slight saturation boost, re-size for TN, and USM.

Hello Mike, wonderful perspective and movement here. I love the low pov, relaxing and serene. Colours on the horizon are also wonderful and the whole scene is an excellent composition.

Hi Mike,
awesome impact from the blurred sea.
I feels like it's sucking me into the shot.
+++ Outstanding composition and the low-down POV is very effective. Great sharpness and detail. Gorgeous lighting and colours.
