I took my family for a quick outing to Carmel, California around 17 mile drive. We were done well before evening and decide to head south. I stopped by at Doud creek for a quick trip to beach.
To my surprise, I discovered 400-500 people on little creek area, atleast 100 of them must be photographers. Later I found out it was famous bloom of Call Lillies during March-April Season. I had to capture this beauty. So I setup my camera and clicked few snaps just to make sure I have few shots without people. Heavy fog moved in before towards evening so my hopes of capturing the sunset colors were dashed so I moved on towards BIXBY Bridge..
Tech: Nikon D800E, Nikkor 14-24, few raw shots in Raw, imported in Capture One, digital blending for focus tacking and dynamic range done in Photoshop CS6 and final touches in NIK software.
