This evening's sunset was absent of any clouds so I took advantage of the cresent moon above the pier. I waited about 20 minutes after the sun set for the light and color to be right. Just as someone approached the moon, I snapped this shot.

In the afternoon, large clouds filled the sky and I pulled out the IR camera. I haven't done that in 4 months. The winter sun angle was not good for IR but I shot some photos anyways.
I went to Manhattan Beach Pier hoping to capture a great sunset. I was disappointed so I stitched together a panorama of the stormy sky. 3 photo opportunities in one day left me exhausted but excited.

Having heard that enough, it is engraved into my head. Today was one of those days. Clouds rolled in early and swallowed the sun and sky. I trekked down to beach anyways as I knew the sky would part for a spectacular sunset. My hunch paid off as it was one the best of the season. Too bad I wasn't smart enough to stitch a panorama shot together.

A few wildfires began today about 40 or so miles away. With the Santa Ana winds blowing from east to west, much of the smoke headed this way.This shot is looking toward Palos Verde with Catalina Island at the end. It highligts the smoke cloud layer that formed this evening.

I couldn't resist photographing this young girl swinging in the twilight.
This one captures the intense colors that painted the sky.

Today I headed for 8th Street and shot these people playing volleyball. It made for a nice shot while I waited for the sunset.
I walked to the pier and found a few people fishing off the side. I took a few shots and settled on this one for uploading.
This a great start to the winter sunsets and I know there will only be more ahead of me. I look forward to the daily walk to the beach to capture the moment.

Yesterday, a storm cleared out at sunset but I realized it to late. Tonight I caught the sunset but it wasn't much to brag about.
For the next four months, I should be at beach greeting all the great sunsets ahead. Stay tuned.
