A few times in the summer, a tropical flow moves through San Diego from the hurricanes coming off Baja. The result is unusually thick humidity (for San Diego) and a really rich cloud formation, that causes major rain in the deserts. When the storm gets to the coast, the clouds break up, creating great opportunities for spectacular sunsets around San Diego.
For years, people have been asking me for a shot of the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad. It’s a place where there are beautiful walking trails around a lagoon, which changes daily based on the tide.Learn More About Everglow >>>
I was lucky that night because the high tide happened during the sunset, filling the lagoon to the brim.
There are a few things about this shot that make it work:
1.) I love that it’s a Torrey pine tree silhouetted against the setting sun. Torrey Pines are very special trees to San Diegans. They are an endangered species that only grows in the Torrey Pines State Park and in the Channel Islands.
2.) The water is lit up with the colors of the sky.
3.) The cloud formation arches over the silhouette of the tree.
But what really puts me in a place of true gratitude, is reading all of your comments. Your creativity is astounding to me! Thank you for enriching my world with your perspective and constant support.
