This time of the year two things always occur here in San Pedro, California. First, it gets windy. I mean, extremely windy. Yes, it probably has everything to do with the fact that it is a port/harbor town. The other is that, again, it being a port/harbor town, the thick wall of marine layer out in the ocean forces the sun to set early. I often see Catalina Island disappear under the thick blanket of marine layers. And this evening it was no exception. Once I was settled at a spot where I was able to capture the sun dropping right behind the wall of marine layer, I simply waited. The windchill was dropping fast. And then it was happening. Every corner of the marina was getting flooded by the gorgeous sunset glow. And then I started pressing the shutter button away.
