This is a way better shot with the wave leading you into the nearby hill and then that draws you eye around to the famous bridge. Great shot. The Sur coastline is wonderful.
The only issue I have is that due to the curve of the mountains the far horizon isn't level. It isn't a big deal but you might like to see what happens if you rotate the image slightly or better just distort it by pulling the top left corner down a bit. #799703

Hi Lisa,

Thanks! Living in Santa Cruz has it's advantages when it comes to coast photography. I need to take more advantage of it though!

Happy New Year,
