This is a tranquil evening scene at Pismo Beach along the California coast at sunset.
The mood in Hawaii is relaxing. No matter where you go you will always be met with beautiful scenery and gracious Hawaiian people. When you are at Waikiki Beach, you can’t go home until you have watched the sun go down. No matter where you are on the island you have to watch the beautiful sunsets. This particular one is on Waikiki Beach at twilight. The surfers sit and watch the sun go down while they wait for the next wave. The waves are very calm in this area of the bay. It’s perfect for someone who wants to learn to surf to start out in this place. Farther south, Diamond Head is waiting for our visit. That area is THE place for windsurfing. But that will be for another day on my photography travels… meanwhile, I’ll be relaxing over here!
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)
