Hidden Beach

Hidden Beach

I walked a section of the south trail this year that I had somehow missed last year, and one of the rewards was Hidden Beach. Just down a short set of steps (nothing like the China Beach or Gibson Beach runs), it is a pebble beach deep in one of the coves…a little hidden gem.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent.  F5.6 @ 1/640 @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the sky and rock highlights. A bit of Fill Light for the shadows. Blackpoint slightly right. Added Vibrance and Clarity in the Presence panel and Sharpen landscape preset.

From Monterey Bay 09.
