Half Moon Bay at Sunset

Saturday night we met with friends for dinner at one of our favorite sushi places in Half Moon Bay, Sushi Main Street. I had my camera with me so I could capture images of the sunset before going to the restaurant.

While walking along the Pacific Coastal Trail, I found this spot with the putting green and two sand bunkers in the foreground, the Ritz-Carlton hotel on the side and the wide open ocean and sky with the setting sun in the back. I do not play golf, but I only can imagine what a pleasure it is to train and compete in such a beautiful location.

I then moved on and went down to the beach. By the time I arrived, the sun had already disappeared below the horizon. But now the low hanging clouds were shining in a nice orange hue. I took some long-exposure photos and I really like the texture of the water and the sky’s reflection in it.

A week ago, I received a request for a print in portrait orientation that I had shot in landscape. The resolution of the original image was sufficiently high so that making this print was not an issue. But it was a good reminder to shoot images in both orientations.

Once I had enough color images, I mentally switched to black&white mode to make some more captures for my waterscapes project. The atmosphere of the following two pictures is quite different from the previous ones.

My little time-slot was over too soon and it was time to head to the restaurant.
