Description

Winter is the best time of the year to capture awesome sunset images along the coastline of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Why winter? Because of the Winter Solstice—the Winter Solstice is an astronomical event that happens once each year when the Sun's apparent position in the sky reaches its southernmost extreme. Given that most of the beaches along this stretch of coastline are south facing we need the Sun to be as far south as possible to capture the glowing orb in our images. Winter also means no crowds so we are likely to have the beach to ourselves. Each session will last three hours and start approximately two hours before sunset. The dates that I have selected coincide with a near low tide at sunset and we will be looking for some exposed starfish and/or other tidal pool creatures for our foreground to compliment the setting Sun in the background. I have seen a lot of wildlife at this location during past workshops including many different sea birds--gulls, cormorants, pelicans and various shore birds as well as marine mammals such as sea lions and dolphins. Tidal pool animals will be abundant, with thousands of mussels, hundreds of anenomes and purple and orange starfish. Please note that this beach in accessed by way of a couple of flights of stairs and can end in a last step drop-off of up to several feet depending on the shifting beach sands. Join me at the ocean’s edge as we capture the beauty of a Southern California sunset at low tide along the coastline of the Santa Monica Mountains.
