Entrance of the Rum Runner’s cave in Sunset Cliffs with sunlight streaming in and painting the inside of the cave with an incredible warm light.
I went to this cave with some friends to try and catch the sunset. As soon as I entered, I saw this beautiful warm light streaming inside and painting the cave walls. Torn between the desire to explore the rest of the cave and photographing the scene. Well photography won out.
This is the Smuggler's or Rum Runner's cave located in Sunset Cliffs. Rumor has it that the cave was used to bring in alcohol and guns from Mexico during the prohibition era. Inside, there are a number of stairs and there is a tunnel that dead ends (previously led to a house that is now gone). Although the cave is very well hidden, you've probably been close to it if you've visited Sunset Cliffs.
