Sunset, Sutro Baths

I had low expectations for this sunset last weekend. A friend had invited me to meet up that morning but the cloud cover was thick and the wind was blowing vigorously along the coast. I went to the beach with the intentions of hanging out and catching up more than shooting, but miraculously, the clouds began to clear just as the sun began to near the horizon.

Nature has some incredible healing qualities. There's something about fresh air, your toes in the sand, leaves rustling in every direction, critters dancing around your feet and the open sky above your head that creates a sort of natural high.

Watching this sunset being painted in the sky was magical. I had been spying on the clouds all afternoon and hoped it would unfold like it did. When I arrived at the beach, I was shocked to see I was the only person on the sand.

On this particular night in March, +Tran Mai and I decided to grab dinner before shooting Sutro Baths for sunset. Dinner lasted longer than expected and we arrived here with about 15 minutes to spare. As soon as the sun went down, we were joined by +Hillary Fox, who was in town. I opened the shutter while we were talking and watching the waves.
