Description 'Big Sur - McWay Falls'Traveling the Big Sur region of California we came upon Julia Pfeiffer State Park, the home of McWay Falls. This tidefall is rare to the region. The fresh water used to fall directly into the ocean. But in the 1980's a fire ravaged the area and left some of the steep drops without solid vegetation. Rains caused a slide just up the beach. After reconstruction started to repair the highway and fortify the cliffs the dirt that had gone into the Pacific was carried by the tide into the small cove and the waves built up the sand beach. Now the waterfall only hits directly into the ocean when the tides are high. It is a must see stop along the scenic Highway 1 route.I Photographed and Reworked this image into a nice brushstroke textured finish. All Copyrights Reserved By Glenn McCarthy 2013

A Little Bit About Me
I became immersed in the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Before that time, in the late 1970's, I was a marketer for Christian Graphics and Designs. Now, in the 21st Century, I have landed as a recorder and instigator of the imagination.
What I Do
I strive to capture scenes, moments, places or thoughts... and share a lasting impression to the viewer! My niche is not necessarily found in one style or theme ... but in the scenes that many might just pass right on by without noticing the small pleasures that they afford. Living life to it's fullest includes noticing those things, places or concepts that we take for granted. Perhaps we need to pause a bit more and enjoy a hot beverage along the way.
