Photographer's Note

Il y a 1 mois (exactement) à Morro Bay qui se trouve sur la fameuse Highway 1 – menant de Los Angeles à San Francisco.
J'avoue, l'image un peu kitch, mais si bêtement beau, de ce coucher du soleil dans le brouillard qui flottait près du Morro Rock... photographié par les photographes amateurs comme moi qui venaient spécialement à Morro Bay pour ce moment-là, précisément.

Sur Morro Rock de Wikipedia (en anglais)

The town's most striking feature is Morro Rock, a 576 foot high volcanic plug. Morro Rock stands at the entrance to the harbor, and a causeway connects it with the shore. Previously, it was surrounded by water, but the northern channel was filled in to make the harbor. The Rock, as locals call it, was quarried from 1889 to 1969. There is no public access to the rock itself because it is a reserve for the locally endangered peregrine falcon. However, the area around the base of Morro Rock can be visited. Every few years, someone is caught trying to climb the rock. Climbers risk more than fines or jail time as the rocks that form Morro Rock are loose and fall down regularly. The base of Morro Rock is littered with fallen boulders.
Morro Rock is one in a series of similar plugs that stretch in a line inland called the Nine Sisters. It is possible that the landscape moved over a volcanic hot spot through the ages.
