Without words. - Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur, California

...Well...almost.

If you've not followed the news on the Big Sur fire it was devastating, and so many people were so drastically affected. The road to Pfeiffer is currently closed due to the fire so our host took us the back way, high into the hills where we could see the damage and finally down into the entrance to Pfeiffer.

Sunday we had Pfeiffer Beach all to ourselves. That's completely unheard of this time of year as photographers from around the world flock to the famous beach to witness the sun set directly in the keyhole arch. But Sunday we were the only ones (other than a handful of locals and a few brave workers who'd helped contained the fire) and the conditions were perfect. No footprints in front of the arch. None. It was said, "we are the luckiest photographers on the planet," and I couldn't agree more.

Kodiak Greenwood it was an absolute honor to meet you. I can't wait to see your shots from tonight and hope to see you again soon. All the best and I really can't thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to experience Pfeiffer in such a remarkable way.
