Shutter: 1/400

Slight adjustments in contrast and levels. This is a beach on the Big Sur coast that is difficult to find but a big surprise and worth the search. The hillside rocks are various colors and there is a creek the comes out thru the green moss-covered woods. The seastacks have windows thru which the surf comes shooting out. Lots of action, so much to see and shoot. The sand is actually shades of black, blond, and pinkish-purple! I did bump it up some to make the point in this tiny forum.

I like this one and hope it does well, I've noticed that sometimes voters don't like that painted, over-edited look - I love it - and again, hope it does well :)

Could have been more dramatic if shot at a different time of day. I do like the sand though.

Back for comments. A polished landscape with great pp'ing but unfortunately I don't think the "mother nature" concept will score very in this challenge.

Beautiful image. The sand looks almost like a pearlized liquid. Amazing.

Nice capture of "mother" nature

I really like this and am bumping it up. The sky is a bit flat, but it does look surreal. Lot's going on, and even a little cave and all. Yeah, I like this more the second time around.

Composition is ok. The subject matter could have been better. Nice image quality. Could have been a little more creative. - 5

Wow. At first I thought that the reddish color was due to editing. Never heard of pink sand. Nice!

I love this, great color and the waters rushing from the center are evocative of birthing waters from a lot of ancient earth worship and legends. I think this is very appropriate and I love the layered textures.

I've never seen anything like this - amazing color in that sand. Off to Google "Pheiffer Beach" now (no idea where that could be). I think this would also be nice with just the sand and a bit of the water, because for me at least, it's the pink sand that makes this image special.

This would be Pfeiffer Beach at Big Sur? I know it well.
