I often turn right toward Golden Cove once I reach the bottom of the cliff after hiking down from Vicente Bluffs Reserve. But I was here not too long ago, maybe less than two weeks ago, and I didn’t feel like taking similar sunset shots. So, I turned left this day and ambled down the shore in the opposite direction. Once settled in by the water, I just waited for the sun to drop. And watched the orange glow cast on the glistening rocks brighter by the minute.
