In the photographer's words: "It takes a special trick of the road to make such a dramatic place seem like a secret discovery. My friends and I had been driving for several hours along a winding road, largely through pasture and agricultural landscape. Someone spotted a small view of the ocean in between two hills, and the road curved soon after to reveal this place that seemed to have everything. All at once we had found the ocean, the mountains, the green hills, and the islands— altogether making one unexpected place full of possibility."
