Mystical Solstice by benkhill Mystical Solstice by benkhill
Golden rays of light burst through a unique doorway carved by time along Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur. Truly one of those beautiful moments where the elements combine in your favor. Winter solstice is the time at which the Sun is at its southernmost point in the sky. During this brief period our sun lines up directly with this portal and allows us to witness a unique phenomenon.

my favorite part of this photo is the way the light is caught by the spray of water on the right.
