This shot was taken at Julia Pfeiffer Burns Underwater Area in Big Sur, California, USA. The area was established in 1970 and is now a scuba diving area. The rocky shoreline is the access to the underwater park. This state park is named after Julia Pfeiffer Burns, a well respected pioneer woman in the Big Sur country. The park stretches from the Big Sur coastline into nearby 3,000-foot ridges. It features redwood, tan oak, madrone, chaparral, and an 80-foot waterfall that drops from granite cliffs into the ocean from the Overlook Trail. A panoramic view of the ocean and miles of rugged coastline is available from the higher elevations along the trails east of Highway 1.
