I am spending a couple of weeks in Southern California and have kicked off the photography!
I headed to La Jolla to watch the sun set, and I was not disappointed- it was a beautiful evening with clear skies as I got down into the Wind and Sea beach area. The view was stunning, with surfers riding waves, sandy beach, rocks, cliffs and more. There is something adventureous and bold about the Pacific Coast beaches that set them apart from those I am used to in the Mid-Atlantic. I set up near some rocks and watched the sunset develop. As expected, it was fantastic.
I stayed on until it was almost completely dark out in order to get those last glows in long exposures. I have more coast to explore, I am looking forward to getting more great photos!
