This photo was taken at Pescadero State Beach on Valentine’s Day. Julie and I made it there a while before sunset and hiked around over the beach and rocks. What a lovely place. As sunset approached we spent a little less time on the rocks and got down closer to the water. To really capture the moment you need to imagine the sound of the birds and waves, the smell of the sea, and then focus on the visuals. Hope you enjoy the photo.
This photo was made on February 14, 2014 at Pescadero State Beach on Valentine’s day with a Nikon D7000 and the Nikon 12–24mm f/4 lens at 12mm. The exposure information was 1/125s, f/9.0, and ISO 100. The image was edited in Lightroom 5 with a graduated filter (exposure, shadows, and contrast to the sky), boosts to the temperature, vibrance, black clipping, shadows, and clarity sliders affected the entire image.
