Son Will and I headed out for the Pescadero coast yesterday and dropped by one of my favorite spots, Pompino Beach.

This shot caught just how big the cliffs there are. If you look to the bottom right you can see two people walking on the beach. This is an awe inspiring place.

Extraordinary shot! At first it looked to me like two photos superimposed, but no - it's one frame, one shot, and one breathtaking place.

I have a huge back up going on for the PC so I have been unable to post anything. Playing around with the new MAC. Dual 2.33 on this one. If I end up really liking this we may do a total switch over to MAC. Great shot!

Great shot John!!! I've been kicking around California all my life and I've never been to Pompino Beach. I know I've seen the road sign for it but can't remember exactly where it is. Can you tell me?

@Craiger: Pompino is about ten miles south of Half Moon Bay.
