Oceanside, California…..On a road trip to California I noticed that the clouds near the beach looked very full, and that usually means a spectacular sunset. So after fighting our way through traffic, I found myself jumping out of my friends car and running to the beach so I wouldn’t miss what was proving to be one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve seen in a while. I rushed to setup my camera because the sun was fading fast. This shot was captured just moments after setting up my camera and seconds before the sun set below the Horizon. I watched as the sky and the water turned Gold for just a moment before turning a brilliant blue and purple.
