I was sitting in the car and noticed the perfect alignment of the moon and the much closer street light, which although it was beginning to get dark, was off long enough for me to take this shot. Came out looking pretty cool and i am happy with the results i got from a quick phone Cam shot.
Amazing Sunset yesterday …
I took this photo from up on a bluff in Goleta, CA with priceless lighting to create one of my favorite shots of this winter. I could tell when i framed the shot that it would look like an indie album cover. You never know, maybe he claims what could be his next cover…
If so i wont even charge him royalties ;-)

Sunset out west in Huntington Beach, CA
Although i have been lucky enough to seen some incredible sunsets here on the California Coast, there is something special about the turquoise and violet colors in this moment in time which likely changed into another combination of brilliant colors moments later. I could only stop briefly but am happy to have captured at least a dew images of that evening. This one is the clearest. I tried to keep my ISO as low as possible and the aperture between 4-7 adjusting as needed to keep the shutter speed manageable. Tripods are recommended to maximize the colors and will allow you to play a little more with the settings.
Here are a few other sunsets I am grateful to have seen:
Colorful Sunset with Oil Tanker in the distance.
Sunset Relfection over the Ocean
