Winters Nightfall

Winter tides rush toward a flaming sunset at Pfeiffer Beach, CA.

Just got home from a epic road trip back into Big Sur with a view stops on the way. I had previously been shooting the portal and became tired of the endless groups of photographers shooting the famous rays. The thought that everyone of us was getting close to the same shot was making me a bit queezy! I realized i was ignoring a beautiful sunset and hiked up north to capture it. After a evening of shooting i perched myself up on a rock and watched the color fade away. Sat down the second i got back from Big Sur and tackled the process of using luminosity masks... wow what a life saver. I would like to thank D Breezy for a helping me work out a couple kinks in my editing process.

Take time to Full View this shot!
