This is a tranquil evening scene at Pismo Beach along the California coast at sunset.
Along the Central California coast, the sky is painted a beautiful Impressionist style before the sun goes down. The tide is low as the silhouette of sea birds line up to find their resting places for the evening.
“You’ve seen the sun flatten and take strange shapes just before it sinks in the ocean. Do you have to tell yourself every time that it’s an illusion caused by atmospheric dust and light distorted by the sea, or do you simply enjoy the beauty of it?” ~ John Steinbeck (Sweet Thursday)
