"San Simeon Schoolhouse and Hearst Castle"
January 2015, San Simeon, California
Occupying some of the most breathtaking real estate on earth, Hearst Castle dominates the landscape as it overlooks the recently rebuilt 134-year-old San Simeon Schoolhouse. Sitting high atop La Cuesta Encantada (The Enchanted Hill), the castle is actually more than 3 miles away from the tiny schoolhouse. I used a long telephoto lens to make the two structures seem much closer together than they really are.
