Last week was nothing but gloom. It drizzled, to us it looked like rain, but over the weekend the clouds moved out of town and on Sunday they left a beautiful reminder of why we should be happy they’re around.
I made the decision to hop in the van and head down to Blackies Beach in Newport Beach, CA. Blackies was packed as perusual on the weekend. After a few minutes of circling, I felt like a shark, I was blessed with a spot. It was after 6, parking was free, even if the sunset wasn’t spectacular, it would still be fun.
Awaiting for the magic moment, I walked around the pier not wanting to get to far from where I planned to shoot.
As the sun began to fall below the horizon the magic began to happen. With every passing second within the 2 hours I was there the beauty became more and more obvious.
The purples and pinks slowly mixing into the blues and golds of the skies pallet.
As I walked back to my van I saw the many faces of watchers staring not at the beauty it’s self, but through a screen. It made me glad I watched without touching my phone.
The grand view.
