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)
Along the rocky shorelines of the central coast of California are spectacular twilights and sunset scenes. Cypress trees line the coastal shores while the sun sets behind the horizon. There is a brief time when the sun is almost down and darkness sets in. This is a time when colors reflect and float along the water and through the trees.
