Colorful Skies- Golden light at Walton Lighthouse, Santa Cruz


Walton Lighthouse Santa Cruz sunset

One more from Santa Cruz, California ... Walton Lighthouse! Less known and small lighthouse but a great place for morning or evening walks. Watching people walking their dogs is a fantastic scene here. I had set up my tripod to catch the design created by waves on the wet sand. At once, the ocean started rising and even before I could react I was standing in the almost knee high waters! You see that in the picture?! It was bit scary! Nature's behavior is very unpredictable!

  4. I was guessing you had a tripod and a long exposure before reading the text - it is a lovely photo in many ways. I love beaches since I'd have to drive a thousand miles to get to a real one!
