This is from last Sunday evening in San Diego. I got a chance to spend a few minutes before shooting with our long time member and a long time friend Henry Wakefield, so that made for a special evening. Now this is at the southern end of Sunset Cliffs, the sun actually had just set, and while I have some cool shots of that, I changed my composition up once the sun went below the horizon and I actually like this one with the way it balances with the clouds quite a bit. I was able to actually shoot some stars too as the skies were incredibly clear after a rainstorm passed through the area. Those will be for later.

All comments are welcome,

Jim

Is that someone standing on the cliff on the left?

Hi Jim,

It's calm with a touch of wild and has a strong 3D feel. Well done!

It's well balanced and abundantly sweet! Great image Jim. I keep saying I need to do some shooting down there but every time I go that way it's always with the family. I'm going to hitch a ride with you next time!

Very nicely composed in a place I embarrassingly didn't go to despite living 10 minutes away for 4 years...

Thanks! Not sure when I will go back, it would have to be in Feb I am guessing. It would be fun to shoot it with you. It's pretty fun to get down there, you have to semi-rappel down about 20 foot.

Hey Quang,

Thanks so much! Yeah, you have eagle eyes. That is a girl standing on that cliff. I thought about cloning her out, but left in at this point. She didn't stand there long and she was gone in just another few frames, I just liked the water movement best in this composition.

Hey Tuan,

Thanks so much. Yeah, next time just hitch a ride. We can have a whole group go as Sunny wants to shoot there too.

Hey Tim,

Now that is crazy!

I am guessing now you need to come visit and go see it?
