The mission in Monterey, California, is just gorgeous. The white wash walls, the pink-orange rock, the vividly colored flowers, and the bell in the tower are so impressive. In the fall along the coast of California, the early morning clouds are not an issue, and in the early morning hours the sky is so blue it is breathtaking.The day I was there an art class was scattered around the courtyard painting at their easels. Artists sitting under their large-brimmed hats were creating their masterpieces. It was quite a sight. There I was among them painting with light, because, after all, photographers who create art do that.
