It’s been a while since I’ve made my way out to Vasquez Rocks for a sunrise photo shoot. It’s still my favorite local spot to photograph. Walking into this place feels like stepping back in time. You can imagine California in its raw state, imagine the feeling early settlers must have had as they watched scenes just like this one, imagine how hard it must have been to get here. I’m so thankful this tiny oasis of natural beauty is here to enjoy.
