For some reason, I've had this scene in my head for some time and it became a quest to find the vantage point on this trip. Hard to tell but a storm had just cleared and the sun was out with no clouds(a landscape photographers nightmare) but it gave me a chance to get out and tinker around the beach.
As a kid, my brothers and I played on these beaches and coves and the memories are delightful. One morning my brother and I took a drive to San Juan Capistrano Beach, to a little historic residential area near the mission. I love my trips back to California!
