Last night’s sunset in Santa Cruz, California. There wasn’t much color in the sky, but the Golden Hour light on this rock formation was really pretty I thought. It also made the ocean a lovely Jade green color.
It was also great seeing and hanging out with friends Dali and Alex, and a big shout out and Thank You to Dali for driving!

  1. This is such a gorgeous area to photograph, love this!

    • Thank you so much Paula! I too love the area. I don’t think I could ever live farther than 30 minutes drive from the sea.
