Turn RIGHT onto the embarcadero when it turns into a dirt road. Head around the back of the
dunes, as if going straight towards the High School from the Embarcadero, as the crow flies.
Let’s face it, most people want photographs with the rock at some point. From this vantage point,
you lose the car park and get to play in the tall grasses of the dunes, or run down the beach to the
water and get a killer reflection. All with that glorious rock as a backdrop. Note: even though you may not see the reflection so easily in the cold light of day, it shows up brilliantly in camera so don’t crop the reflection out! Also important is the wind factor. Reschedule if it’s windy. Your
subjects will be cold and have hair straight up. Not the ideal portrait.
