When I stepped out the door, the thin layer of hazy clouds was deflecting the sunlight. I wondered if it would clear up. It had been a warm day. Since it was a weekday, the beach was scarce of beachgoers. Just a handful of people came and went, including a couple of guys appearing to be taking in-use photos of messenger bags or sort. Once they left, the view was cleared of people just in time for sunset. The sunset glow on the glistening rocks and water was quite exquisite. A few strands of thin, feathery Cirrus clouds decorated the sun. It was time to capture that wonderful moment.
