Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is about about 15 min drive from my house. Plus maybe 20 min walk inside. I've been so lazy lately - did not shoot anything the whole month, and on the last day decided to shoot something for the FS, so this place came up to my mind as an easy target. It is fittingly called Broken Hill, I shoot it once before this year

I must confess that in real life it is not as grand, the height of these slopes is about 15 m or so, but the lack of an obvious scale gauge (like a person), and smallish trees and bushes make it look much more grand than it is.
