Long lens? (lol) 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 7, 2019 • 7:39 am Ha, David. Barely…those waves sneak up on you if you’re not careful! I was using my 90mm so that helped. 🙂 Thanks for visiting! Reply ↓ aakanewicloudcom August 4, 2019 • 8:44 am great capture…love the detail!! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 4, 2019 • 11:46 am Thanks, April. A favorite Big Sur stop. 🙂 Reply ↓ C.S. Young Jr. August 3, 2019 • 5:07 pm Excellent composition Jane, love the contrasting tonality and textures, especially the wave! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 3, 2019 • 7:51 pm That means a lot, Sam. This spot in Big Sur is incredible. Thank you. 🤗 Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt August 3, 2019 • 4:09 am What a unique spot! You had to do some gymnastics to catch that shot I would assume! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 3, 2019 • 9:31 am Thanks, Linda. My long lens helped but you do need to be quick on your feet, which doesn’t always happen. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed this one. Reply ↓ mdhoffmannphoto August 2, 2019 • 7:59 pm I’m wondering if the locals just call it “Archie”? Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 3, 2019 • 2:28 pm Good one, Michael! 🤣 Reply ↓ mdhoffmannphoto August 3, 2019 • 9:06 pm I’m glad you have a sense of funny Jane – I can tell by some of your captions! Reply ↓ YellowCable August 1, 2019 • 3:26 pm Very nice. I guess you were in the water to take this picture? Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 3:27 pm Hi YC, On the water’s edge with my long prime. Glad you like it- thanks. 🙂 Reply ↓ Leya August 1, 2019 • 2:02 pm Beautiful – I guess I would not have stayed dry though… Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 3:28 pm Thanks, Ann-Christine. It’s tricky and those California waves can sneak up on you. 😉 Reply ↓ Gunta August 1, 2019 • 1:51 pm Thanks, Jane. Remember trying to catch a sunset through there last time I visited. You do get to some of the best places on this planet! 😀 (and catch the best images.) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 10:02 pm Hi Gunta, I’ve never been there at sunset — I hope you got some good ones. It’s such a gorgeous spot. Happy this brought back good memories-thanks very much. So many places to visit, so little time… 🙂 Hope your summer is going well. Reply ↓ paula graham August 1, 2019 • 1:39 pm Fascinating places Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 10:04 pm Thank you, Paula. Pfeiffer is a favorite spot in Big Sur, known for this arch and also for its purple sand. Reply ↓ Michael Doran August 1, 2019 • 12:30 pm Nice composition and the B & W adds a different feel to the image. I can almost hear the whooshing of the surf through the hole and taste the salt spray ! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 6:22 pm Thank you, Michael. I’m glad you think the B&W works well for this. I love how it accentuates the patterns on the rocks. Pleased this brought you there! 🙂 Reply ↓ John August 1, 2019 • 12:26 pm Looks wonderful! I’d not try swimming there… 😎 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 6:20 pm Thanks so much, John. Yeah…I sure agree…people do along the beach but the currents must be tricky. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Iwan August 1, 2019 • 12:20 pm Very cool shot, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2019 • 6:19 pm Thanks, Jane. And wonderful memories of spending time there with you. 🙂 Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
