Light me up

Venice Beach

In Aruba, I remember the Lawyer driving furiously along the main road, egged on by me.  The sun was setting and I needed him to get us to the beach before it was too late.  It can be difficult to capture a sunset in Aruba.  Clouds often obscure the view.

Last summer in Yosemite, I was the one to drive hurriedly, hoping to catch the sunset's orange glow against the rocky domes on our last day.

On my recent trip to LA, I was able to capture sunset at Venice Beach and in Santa Monica.
