I took this photo of the rocks at Land’s End off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, from the deck of Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas in January 2006.
Professional photographers talk about how photography is all about the light, but I didn’t even start to think about that until I looked at this photo. I wasn’t really aware of the light when I took the photo, and I can’t claim to understand it now. But at least I see it.
I had wanted to see the rocks at Land’s End, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific, for years — ever since I saw a National Geographic photo of them. They were even more striking than I expected. And Cabo, one of those end places, is lots of fun.
