Weekly Photo Challenge – Earth

Earth

Photo Apr 12, 8 56 15 PM

I took this photo on a recent trip to Big Sur, California— I hiked through Point Lobos Wildlife Reserve and was stunned each time I turned a corner to find a sweeping vista or a herd of sea lions sunning themselves on the rocks. This photo in particular still reminds me of how it felt to be perched like a tiny bird on a cliff in Big Sur, looking at the gorgeous view in front of me; it seemed like even Michelangelo wouldn’t be able to recreate the sun glinting over the cliffs like gold, or the blue, green, and white foaming waves crashing against the rocks. I realized,  standing here and snapping this photo, that having the privilege to stand in the middle of a living, breathing painting is even better than seeing it in a museum.
