El Matador cave Milky Way selfie, Malibu CA

Here’s a shot from the Matador cave. Little bit less light pollution glow in this cave facing more South and the edit is a little more natural with the sky being a bit warmer and not as blue as my shot from the Leo cave. I took some with a human element and some without and while the one without is great, the one with me standing here shows you how big this cave is. There are a ton of crevices you can shoot under at this beach looking like you are in a cave when in reality you are just crouched under a rock formation. This one requires a low tide and since it’s a bit of a walk plus you have to go around some inlets, you don’t want to get caught out here with the rising tide. Always be safe and check tide tables before you go. I’m glad I was able to check these caves off my list of MW shots to get.

  1. What part of Matador Beach is this? We were just there and did not see a cave this big. Is it further North?
