Broken | Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve

A long ridgeline in the process of eroding and crumbling leads to Broken Hill in Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.

The Story Behind the Photo

I often go hiking in Torrey Pines and usually end up at Broken Hill. I think the landscape here is beautiful with the eroding cliffs and a long ridgeline connecting the viewpoint to the hill itself. People often come here for sunset and I have enjoyed more than my share of them.

Photographically, the scene is a challenge. The viewing area is quite small and you are not allowed to go off trail in order to protect the sensitive habitat. To take this photograph, I had to stand far out on the cliff edge right where it was starting to crumble. This is a bit of a problem if you have a fear of heights!
