After photographing the Santa Cruz Wharf for sunrise, I headed down the road to the Walton Lighthouse at the Santa Cruz harbor. The clouds had changed to soft hues of orange, pink, and purple.
Vivid sunrise at the Santa Cruz harbor while a crescent moon sits above the Walton Lighthouse.
The Walton Lighthouse sits on the end of the Santa Cruz harbor's jetty. Late in the afternoon on an overcast day, the sun broke through the clouds and beams of light shone upon the Pacific ocean. A small flock of pelicans flew through the scene over Twin Lakes Beach.
