Default Sunset sequence

July 18, 2012 I noticed the cirrus clouds over our area and I had a feeling that we were going to have a nice sunset. I asked my girl if she would like to watch the sunset at the beach and model for me. She agreed.

This is a sequence of shots from we arrived until the incredible event was at it's peak.

7:52 PM we found an area away from the crowd and had a seat, got my camera and flash out and waited.

8:05, not much color-wise yet. But she was a good sport.

8:21, the last shot. It was a beautiful time and I got some great practice with my flash.
Any C&C are welcome.

Great shots, Mike. From "here it comes" to the last picture are just gorgeous, as is the model You should do that more often, you have some killer sunsets, apparently.

Thanks Robert
I see a lot of impressive sunsets here on the west coast but I have never seen one better then this. It seemed like everything just fell into place at the perfect time, including my believe it or not very shy wife who was enjoying the moment almost as much as I was.
You have a very beautiful wife and I have also seen some very nice Florida sunsets, and sunrises come to think of it. It's an ideal location for the same type of shots I got here. You should give it a go, it's a nice way to flatter your wife, Get just at least one nice artistic photo, frame it and watch how she reacts. It seems like the more nice shots I get of of my wife the easier it gets to have her model (and yes, she is a grandma but so what) the next time I ask.
Beautiful scenery and beautiful women make the best photo's if you ask me.

Haha! If your wife is shy, then mine is a recluse! But I will try to get her out. We've taken the grandbabies out and shot them at sundown...pun intended...so I just need to turn the camera on her, and hope for the best.

And of course, the California coastline is much more dramatic than ours, and this one faces south, so it's tricky catching the setting sun AND the ocean together.
