Morro Rock

Morro Rock

My friends Allen and Bea invited me to spend a day with them in Los Osos, Morro Bay, and San Luis Obispo and I jumped at the opportunity!  I love hanging out with them and our photo excursions are never a disappointment.

I have been up north several times but I can't remember ever paying attention to The Rock until I saw this amazing HDR photo taken by Beth Sargent.  I was excited to capture it for myself.  I must admit that when I got back home and looked at all the photos from that day, I hated them all of everything except this one of Morro Rock.  I liked the composition of the image out of the camera but I felt that it needed a little extra something.  I added sparse clouds in Photoshop and applied an article I read in the 4th edition of The Ultimate Guide to Digital Photography to boost saturation using Lab Colors in Photoshop.
