Ice plant is a non-native evasive plant that grows along the headlands of the Big Sur coast. While many may abhor its presence, photographers adore it. Yesterday evening, the warm color was glowing (the plant is actually a succulent and has a bit of transparency to it). I was working with a client and we were both enchanted by the glow. To capture the rich color, I had to find a scene where I placed myself behind the ice plant and the sun. I found this hillside and flattened my tripod. I knew the incredible sensor of my Sony a7R II would handle the extreme dynamic range - one frame - click!
