I’ve always joked that I absorb sunlight like a sponge, and as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realize I can’t live anywhere without it. While lots of folks love Seattle or Alaska- give me sunshine every day.
Here we are, in the depths of winter in the northern hemisphere and all I can think about is getting back to summer and the beach. Ironically enough this picture (from 2009!) was shot in December not long after I moved to California during an unseasonably warm Christmas.
That last blinding moment of sunlight as the sun sinks beneath the waves..
It’s rare when the swells are this flat, but it made for a really interesting low tide at sunset.
I love the way the surf carves out around these the rocks.
I love at low tide when sand gets super reflective and irridescent.
So it’s ALMOST the infamous Lone Cypress.. but not quite 🙂 Taken off the coast of Monterey, CA on 17 Mile Drive.
The tide is giong out at sunset, Swami’s Beach in Encinitas. The surfing crowd compete for the few last waves before the light is gone.
