Keyhole Arch at Pfeifer Beach in Big Sur, California.
When the year comes close to the end, the sun reaches the perfect angle to shine at sunset through the Keyhole Arch in Pfeifer Beach, right in the middle of the Big Sur on the beautiful Californian coast. The waves crash rhythmically through the hole in the rock, lighting up in intense orange and red, but you won't feel alone in front of this spectacular view: it's highly likely that you had to elbow your way in through more than thirty tripods, each accompanied by its own photographer, all frantically capturing the scene with the widest range of cameras and lenses I've ever seen in one single place. For more than an hour, I tried different view points, crossing the view of almost every photographer who was on that beach, surely ending up in some of the frames, and being the target of more than one rant squarely directed towards me. It was all worth it when I found the frame I was looking for.
The original 24''x36'' museum quality canvas is available for sale to collectors in limited edition of ten, uniquely printed and signed by the artist and provided with certificate of authenticity. A beautiful investment that will last for generations.
