Happy Bench Monday {Carlsbad Sunset} Edition!

I haven't done a bench shot in awhile ... so when I'm with the girls, I always try to grab a few for later! I had a lot of fun chauffeuring Rachel around San Diego and surrounding hamlets ... showing her what she could do, where she go, etc.


At sunset, our path put us near Carlsbad State Beach. We hopped up on the sea wall and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset ... and of course this bench shot! Loved the couple walking together, hand-in-hand and the fabulous sun flare! This looks much better in the lightbox!!


Happy Bench Monday!

    Good gravy. How in the world do you do this? I'm truly in awe Trina. It would take 3 pages to say everything I want to say about this image. So I'll just say that you are my hero! Some day when I grow up I want to be like you....seriously.

    This...I love! It's so amazingly hard to work out the perspective...like two tiny people running along the beach through the legs of a giant! Awesome perspective, awesome tones...those hues are gorgeous!
