Hearn Gulch Sunset
Hearn Gulch is located at Mile Post 10.0 on the Mendocino Coast. There is a small parking lot on the ocean side at this mile post. If you walk out on the peninsula you see beautiful views of sea stacks to the left. To the right you see the beach where this photo was taken. A path leads down to the beach where I went for this photo outing. When you get to the beach there is a blow hole on the right side. When surf is active you will hear the loud roar as the surf hits this area and sprays high into the air. The sound is very obvious even in the parking lot.
In the afternoon I was photographing the blow hole and spray which was much higher earlier in the day. I decided to wait to see what would happen when the sun disappeared behind the rock. It turned out to be a good decision as the angle of the sun directed the beam through the hole in the rock and onto the beach. I was fortunate with my timing as this sun angle is only available about one week out of the year. The photo also benefited from the golden hue of sunset lighting. Photographers refer to this as the Golden Hour.
This photo is a 1x2, height to width ratio. Typical sizes are 10x20, 15x30, and 24x48. All of my photos are reproduced as dye infused metal prints. These metal prints have unsurpassed luminescence and have outstanding archival qualities. They can be sized to meet individual needs. Many frame options are available to customize the photo to individual taste and budget considerations. I very much enjoy working with customers to help them create something that will have special meaning for years to come.
I am a nature and wildlife photographer. Since retiring 20 years ago I have been fortunate to enjoy having the ocean as my back yard and enjoy the ever-changing landscape and wildlife. Since I’m here full time I have the opportunity to witness and photograph the best the area has to offer. Sunrises, Sunsets, breaking waves, hummingbirds, osprey and pelicans are some of my specialties. I also have been fortunate to visit other beautiful areas and catch them in their finest hours.
