    Lovely photo. I particularly like the results of the long exposure on the water – dreamlike. Blessings.

    Mystical. I see why they call it the Elfin Forest… did you see any elves? I have been to San Diego, but never to this forest, so now I have to go back. And of course the sun is perfectly placed on top of the branch. Nice capture Rey.

      Rodney – no elves… too busy fending off goblins and orcs. The Elfin Forest is awesome, but so easy to drive by and miss. The signage is minimal and it would be very, very easy to never know it’s there. I guess most magical places are that way…

      Thanks for your comment!

    So THAT’S where they make the cookies!!!

    Nice one Rey.

  7. Nice shot. Seeing it reminds me that I’ve not been there in while and should go back. It’s a great spot, and as mentioned, easy to miss.
