Fire Sky - Half Moon Bay, CA

Nov 7, 2011  |  Half Moon Bay, CA

I dont measure the good days in life by good sunsets and sunrises, but some of them burn into my memory forever. Our trip with family to Half Moon Bay was great on its own. However on the way back to San Francisco the cloud formations suggested that the weather conditions were ideal for the rare sunset when the layered clouds would reflect back the last rays of the sun. After an hour of driving I found the perfect spot halfway near Grey Whale Cove State Beach and Montara on the Pacific Coast Highway. My wife was equally excited about the beautiful sky theater as it started unfolding. To the west the colors soon fired up in front of our eyes. The whole phenomenon only lasted 15 minutes, which allowed 4 shots to be taken. This was the best of all. A wonderful day in October on the California Coast, which finished by an amazing sunset. The Fire Sky.
