I've had my fill of this area and was walking up from the water's edge ready to rejoin my two friends who have both clearly walked ahead, almost to Weston beach, when I decided to look back one more time at where I was shooting just minutes earlier. Maybe it was the yellowish sandstone rocks or the dark Carmelo Formations further out but the sunlight peeking through the clouds above had such a narrow beam that only certain parts of the scene were lit with what looked like golden light. The light beam was slowly moving from the water's edge toward my location so I waited until the light was just right. I've had to chase light many times before, but this was probably the first time I waited for it to chatch up.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look and as always, I do appreciate all constructive comments and faves.
