Moody El Matador (Sunset, Malibu)

    Newer Older

    The light at the beach tonight was GORGEOUS--and I almost missed it, thanks to rush-hour traffic. My feet hit sand about 10 minutes before sunset, and I was still able to get a little of the color. Unstable monsoonal moisture brought in some killer clouds, and for a change, they all stuck around at sunset, instead of mocking me and disappearing. :)

      Ooh, such amazing light.
      Getting your tripod dirty for this case is worth it, I guess!
