San Diego - Coronado Beach Sunset Glow
I love how the water reflects the brilliant sky! This was taken at Coronado Beach on Christmas Eve 2015.
Photo Tip - The Right Moment
I took many photos at this location during the sunset and this one was the best one for a couple reasons.
First, the sun had already set about 15 minutes before. Sometimes, not always, the brightest colors occur after the sun has set. Waiting around to find out is all part of the experience. The color reflection also was at its peak after the sun had set. True, you don't get the direct reflection of the sun on the water in a line between you and the sun, but the ambient colors are so intense, the water seems to absorb the colors.
Second, do you see the swash on the left, how it wraps around the backwash? While looking in my camera eye piece, I could see the swash coming from the left and it was looking very interesting so I started taking multiple images. Personally, I think the boundary between the swash and backwash adds a nice shape to the foreground.
