I understand some people think sunsets just sort of happen.
This North Coast frequently bears witness to the fact that a really good sunset is made.
Let me show you.
With all the emphasis on its coastline…and the fact that the sun usually sets down on the western horizon…I thought we could watch the choreography along the shore.
The sun prefers a photographic scene…really likes clouds and can mix in some fog, and a wash of water helps reflections.
The sun begins to crank up the color, and gets more water washing through the scene.
Although a wash of color is nice, more focused and intense colors seem to get more applause.
The sun wants more water…let’s do waves!
Ahhhh….now THAT’S a sunset!
Wait…hold on…don’t leave now! Remember? It’s not over….
Even 20 minutes after sunset, the glow is still all over the sky and bouncing off the sand right at your toes….and the waves are still exploding….
