Driving up the coast to San Francisco, we stopped at a place called the Dinosaur Caves just outside of Grover Beach. I found this cool “rock island” topped with many pelicans. The colors and textures of the rock really intrigued me. A little tweeking in PS, but no saturation needed. This is the result. Uploaded for a challenge.
