The colors of China Cove in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve are surreal. The first time I saw China Cove was on a postcard in Carmel. That postcard, and this photograph do not do justice to the emeralds and turquoises of the water, framed by dense, dark bull kelp. I took this picture before I came into possession of a ultra wide angle lens, and so I am looking forward to capturing the whole cove when we go back to California next.
