Looking down on Highway 1.

After an hour of taking pictures of the Black Oystercatchers in the rain, the sun finally broke through just before sunset and I managed to get a few more closeups.
Small cascade with Salmon Creek Falls in the background. Too many zen seekers blocking the path closer so after an hour I decided it wasn't meant to be.
