Huntington Beach and Sunset Views
Made a whirlwind trip to LA the first week in October to visit family.
Thanks to Andy Brooks for driving through the storm from heck! Not fun to be deluged by pouring rain and then hit an area of construction on I-5 only to have mud splash across the windshield. But we made it safely.
We were rewarded with a wonderful clear sky for sunset on Wednesday night and headed to Sunset Beach. Although, not a sunset shot–this was my favorite from that evening. (Lensbaby view!)
We did find a few minutes to visit Seal Beach…
The following evening, we met up with a friend from Facebook. Have been enjoying Jeff Scott’s images and originally connected with him through his cousin, Pat–fondly known as Scooter from our Girl Scout Camp days at Camp Mountain Meadows. It was a pleasure to meet and shoot in person! Here are a few of the views.
I had put a request in for clouds–but none were to be found in this direction.
Did have a good laugh at myself that evening when I saw the shots Jeff shared on Facebook. We met at the Huntington Beach Pier…have seen many shots from Jeff near this locale. Since the setting sun location was not in alignment from underneath the pier–I wanted it at the end…decided not to try and get the pier. So, Andy and I were shooting the sunset on the North side of the pier. Jeff—was shooting from the South side and got tremendous shots of the sunset with the pier in it! Clearly, just because the sun wasn’t where I wanted it to be–still made for a fabulous shot with great shadows! Note to self–next time, get the pier in the sunset shot!! May I always have the ability to laugh at myself and learn from others:) Thanks for that moment, Jeff!
