After a November on the left coast with adventures both north and south of the border, I wanted to spend my last afternoon taking in the sunset. So, before heading to the airport and the red-eye back to New York I stopped in La Jolla on the California coast. I set up a late lunch with fellow photographer and family friend, my “uncle Ernie.”
After some tapas and travel talk we ventured down to the seashore to watch the sunset. Along the beach a slim seawall extends into the Pacific to allow visitors a chance to view the local seal colony. Yet, it seems to serves dual purposes. It becomes a perfect place to view a California sunset. And this evening it was packed.
As we walked on the cement wall walkway, I noticed the shadows of the viewing public on the fence. I snapped the image. Then as the sun edged closer to the horizon, I turned the other way to view the moment.
As the end of day approached and the last of the warming rays shined on the water, the birds took flight to find their night time home. At that moment, I snapped another image. A few actually.
My trip to La Jolla provided a perfect end, or rather the perfect “sunset” to my left coast swing. Happy Sunset Sunday.
Stay adventurous, Craig
