The clouds had been doing amazing things all day, and visibility was at an amazing high level, so I immediately knew the sky had all the ingredients for a great sunset. With this in mind, I set out for one of my favorite ocean shooting locations near Newport Beach, California.
When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find a large group of my fellow Southern California landscape photographers there, including four who I'd been following online for months, but never met in person! It was great getting to meet the people behind so many of my favorite photographs and actually shoot alongside them. We even shared lenses and filters with each other as we shot throughout the evening together. It was a great time!
Shoutouts to Dara Lork, Steph Sawyer, Leigh Langman, Jo Jo, and Rhonda for being great shooting pals!
