Sandstone Erosion at Point Lobos State Reserve, California

Point Lobos is a Mecca for landscape photographers. I visited when I was in Monterey last year. When I returned home, I discovered from another photographer that Edward Weston had taken almost this exact shot 49 years earlier. It is interesting to compare his shot with this one to see how the stone has weathered. Weston's Sandstone Erosion, 1942 was taken with an 8x10 view camera on B&W film when very few photographers shot this kind of subject. I shot this as a vertical also.

LENS: 100-400 at ~250mm | FILM: Fuji Provia 100F | EXPOSURE: f/5.6 at 1/?" | DATE: 05/01
