Pescadero, CA., just south of Half Moon Bay. It had stormed all morning, and would continue to do so most of the afternoon, but I caught a break and hiked down to the rocky shore of Pescadero Cove. I saw a young couple walk out on the bluff and caught them in, what I later would find out, was a very special moment. I ran into them up by the road and told them of the photo I'd taken. I asked for their email address and told them I'd send a copy if it came out alright. They were thrilled...
So what was the moment I'd captured? ....
It was him proposing, and she saying yes.
