Sunset at Otter Point
Sunday brought the promise of high surf with the presence of tropical storm Leslie well offshore. So when I left my home late Sunday afternoon it was with the idea of trying to capture some good surf pictures, not photograph a sunset. The skies were moody and gray when I arrived at Otter Cliffs, but the surf was crashing and approaching high tide.
I hiked the short distance from Otter Cliffs to Otter Point, stopping here and there to enjoy the waves and snap a few pics. When I rounded the corner that leads to Otter Point, much to my surprise I saw that the skies were starting to clear on the western horizon. I thought to myself: “hmmm, if these skies continue to clear, this could get interesting”.
The time of the photo below was 6:07 p.m. with sunset about 45 minutes away.
As you can see from the series of pictures below, the skies continued to change and although I did move around once or twice, to avoid some other surf gazers, I was treated to a beautiful display of sky, sea, and light.
