Autumn Sunset at Natural Bridges
The autumn sunset light fills the sky along with a crescent moon ove Natural Bridges beach. The low tide helps create reflections in the glassy sand.
While along the rugged and scenic central California coast, the storm broke at sunset. Streams of rain, or virga, lit up with colorful reds and oranges as wave from the Pacific ocean crashed onshore.

Wave Panning #8
Intentional camera movement in the form of panning the camera side to side with the incoming waves is a wild and unpredictable process. But every so often, I find an image I like that has nice forms or lines.
