Monterey Gems

Clear

I love looking down onto this secret beach in Monterey Bay, one of several unnamed little spots where the rocky coastline, flanked by aloe cactus and draped in pink iceplant, gives way to a private world. Depicted here in thick brushstrokes at the time of dusk known as the gloaming, the beach pebbles and swirling turquoise waters are alive with an extra glow.
