Pacific Coast Sunset
One day while we were in Monterey we took a drive
down Highway 1. It was a hazy day, but that made
for a nice sunset. As we got higher on the side of
the mountain it looked like we were above a layer
of clouds that was hugging the water. With a little
luck I will have some photos of that... as soon as
I get the other 23 rolls of film developed. :-D
The bright spot at the left of the photo that initially looks like the sun is actually a lens flare. The sun is out of the frame. Because of the haze, including the sun in the shot made a large fuzzy bright area rather than a nice sunset shot.

This shot is from a drive down Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) in the late afternoon on a hazy day. The haze and low sun made a beautiful golden glow. And, it was a particularly windy day, a few rain showers had just passed through which made for some nice waves.
