A Monumental Gateway III

Some views are just so majestic that you want to photograph them over and over again, and even if the angle is just a little bit different, it's still ok, because each visit seems just as fresh and inspiring as the first time you saw it.

At Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle is easily the number one most popular example, but at Disney California Adventure, my personal favorite is the Pacific Wharf entry into Cars Land.  Here, guests walk under a grand stone archway and into the gorgeous confines of Ornament Valley.  The panoramic grandeur that unfolds all around is sweeping and overwhelming, enveloping stunned guests in a pristine beauty and a striking representation of the rugged, rocky West. 

At night, the view becomes even more sublime, as the subtle lighting brings out the warmth and texture of those beautiful canyon rocks and sedimentary geology.  So this may be a view I've posted before, but it never fails to amaze me.

Another view at the incredible entrance into Cars Land!
