A short walk from the parking lot at Pfeiffer Beach, located off the small town in Big Sur, California.
I had been exploring the rugged coastline of Big Sur when I decided to end my day at Pfeiffer Beach. Usually this place can be mobbed with photographers, but a lackluster sunset had them packing up early. I moved my tripod closer to the slippery rocks, when suddenly the bland sky began to light up with an explosion of color. For about a minute I raced around trying to capture the rapidly fading light.
