Panther Beach Sunset

Posted by CW McGowen (Morgan Hill, United States) on 21 January 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This weekend, Mike Hall and I photographed Panther Beach. I had photographed Panther before, but from the north end. Mike introduced me the south beach. With the Sea Stacks, rocks, ledges and churning water, the south end has a much more spectacular vista. Reaching this location was a bit treacherous with slippery rocks and small ledges to navigate. Where I was more careful traversing the paths, Mike climbed like a mountain goat making the slick route look easy.

We were both a bit surprised by the crowds at the we found. On our way north, it was obvious by the number of cars parked along Highway 1 that the beaches were being well used. This day was warm and sunny which obviously drew people out to enjoy the seaside atmosphere. When we left after dark, there were still many people enjoying the warm evening around bonfires.
