Soberanes Point... or...Sobering Point

Big Sur, California

See all those pretty rocks in the foreground? Fun to look at... not fun to navigate. Nor was the
"sobering" cliff we climbed down and back up... in the dark!!. What we won't do for the shot, eh?

First Place, 233rd Show and Tell Contest "Coastal Landscapes"

other sizes: small medium original auto

Just so everyone knows... Stephen had to push me up some of that rock face! I still have to laugh every time I think about it. :)))
Guest 30-Sep-2008 17:18
Great capture with fantastic light. So everyone knows, I had to convince Sandi to climb down the side of a 30 foot rock face...but what I didnt tell her was that we'd have to climb back up it IN THE DARK! She realized this of course once we got to the bottom...snickers. She was a trooper though and did it with no problem!
