When I travel, I keep my camera with me all the time, never knowing when an opportunity will come along. We were having an early dinner on a pier in Santa Cruz when the sun set. I left my dinner and ran outside to capture this pano of the horizon. Definitely worth the cold fish!
A couple of years ago, we went on a trip to northern California, and took a whale watching tour out in Monterrey Bay. Over the tour (four hours…shades of Gilligan), we saw Orca, Dolphins, and many whales. As sunset fell, and we headed back in, there must have been dozens of spouts on the horizon backlit by an amazing sunset. The moment was unforgettable the cool salt spray, the chop of the water, and colors can’t be fully captured in a photograph, though I still tried.
