I live along the coast of Southern California and at sunset you will usually find me at the beach. But I gotta say, this was one of the most glorious light shows I'd seen in a while. I loved how the rich and vibrant colors of the sky were reflected in the wet sand. While I would have been content to just capture the colors, I was delighted when this small flock of shore birds landed and walked slowly through my viewfinder. It was just the finishing touch I needed to elevate this capture to the next level. I shot this scene at Cardiff Reef, Cardiff State Beach, CA.
