To be and hand-hold shot i think you did your best! yes, there's some noise, but looking at the entire pic it disappears.

Great shot! Maybe a liiiittle over-saturated on the blue? But that beautiful sky out-weighs any nit-picky things. Also I love the cave at the bottom!

wrecked my motorcycle on the pacific coast trying to take a picture in 2005. I got into some gravel and it was lay it down or go over the edge. A nice guy in a red corvette helped me pick up my bike. The picture only turned out ok because of the August fog.

good work.

I wish my hand-held shots looked this good.

A nice edition to the photography-by-the-seat-of-your-pants category. ;)

I love the little open area of grass and the white bench in the center of this pic. Great shot!

Your other submission is awesome, but this one is, unfortunately, somewhat blurred (or maybe it's just my monitor).

Thanks for the feedback everyone. It was getting dark when I took the picture. Hence the high ISO and large aperture. I wish I had taken my tripod with me.

It took me a while on Google Earth to find the spot. It is at 36°24'41.66"N 121°54'51.44"W
