This photo for me is an example of when you know what to look for in the weather and what happens when you go with your gut. When I get off work, one of the first things I do is look up at the sky and see what the clouds look like. I preferably look towards the west because I can check to see if the clouds are on the horizon or not. And that’s important because it will determine if we will have a brilliant sunset of a dual one.
On the day of this photo, it look promising and based on the previous sunsets and on my previous experience I decided to make a run for the beach. I decided that La Jolla Shores would be perfect because it was easy to get to and on my way home. Plus it is a beautiful beach.
Rushing to the beach, I kept looking at the clouds and the clouds started to change color. And when I arrived the colors have started to intensified. So I took a couple of shots from the street and then notice the low tide.
The low tide conditions left the surfline, pretty reflective and I headed down to the beach. And just then a surfer was coming from surfing and I snapped a few photos and the result is the photo that you see.
