I took this photo during the last hour of the day on the side of the road just before the Pierce Point Ranch complex.
The mile or so before the ranch complex is my favorite place in the Seashore for the end of the day. The reason for that is that I can usually find some elk crossing from the west side of Pierce Point Road to the east side of the road then. It’s easy then to position your car close to the elk and with the car between the setting sun and the elk. The backgrounds are usually clean also. Close-up photos like the above are easy there then.
