I was recently in California, on Seal beach, it is my mom's favorite beach in California, while we were there, I had this crazy idea that I wanted to go to Huntington beach to catch the sunset,
I having not made that drive before, asked one of the locals who said it was about 15 minutes up the highway 1, which is a highway that runs right along the coast for quite a while, mind you sunset is about 20 minutes away, so we get in the car and book it, down the one, we pass several beaches, and it has definitely been more that 15 minutes, I see a few nice places, but I really want to make it to this little spot right on Huntington beach so I keep going hoping to run into it, I , being the smart person I am, realize that the sun is clearly setting and if I dont pull over and make due with what I have then I'll be on the plane in the morning with no pictures of any sunset and no pictures of any beach, and I wanted at least one good one, anyway... long story less long, I end up turning around before I reach Huntington beach and pulling into a beach called Bolsa Chica Beach. I made it just in time, and ended up having to run about a quarter mile with all my gear down to the beach, afraid to miss the sun setting. I think I will just stop at the first nice place I see next time, and leave myself some time to enjoy my surroundings, you live and you learn. Here are the photos in the order that they were taken
I still cant believe this picture was next, It feels
and looks like it should be close to last,
but it was just so much darker on the other side of the sky
I'm not sure why, but I really like the piece of driftwood
in this picture
The sun is almost all the way gone, I thought the sun
would set on the water... right on the water line...
This wasn't taken until after sunset,
when I was walking back
This was the very last shot of the night,
I still haven't figured out what that is
out there in the water
If you know please educate me
Which one do you like best???
Ive always loved the beach, the sound of the waves crashing, the sand, the breeze and dew on my skin, the violence of the waves, and knowing that there is so much more than what meets the eye just below the surface. Sitting by the ocean silently always helped me find peace, and clarity, the rain has the same effect on me, very calming.
