North Coast Sunset II


One of the things I wanted to get a picture of before we move (in a couple weeks, yikes) was a coastal sunset shot. I was running around the beach in the crazy wind and cold trying to get these last week (I lost my phone the process, I think it fell out of my pocket when I was running back to the car). So I can check this off my list because this is definitely the prettiest sunset I've seen since being here and I'm quite pleaseed with the how the photos came out :) Usually, it's just rainy and gray when the sun goes down, but not this day.
