First time I've ever shot lightning I'm ashamed to say - couldn't resist the swaying palms & granite rocks as foreground - don't get that in the Surrey Hills

The previous post was from my favorite night of shooting in California (and perhaps anywhere) and this was is as well, only about 16 minutes later and facing the other direction.
I was thrilled after arriving when I realized the long sloping shore and low tide made for perfect reflections. I had never shot a reflection before and didn't have much to go on so I did a mix of both long and short exposures for the next few hours.

As I shot, the sky became more and more vibrant and the intensity of the sunset was unlike anything I've ever seen. The colors changed rapidly and the concentrated crimson sky in the previous post seemed to appear out of nowhere and faded not too long after. For about a half hour, people slowly gathered around the area I was shooting, watching the sky and taking videos and photos with their phones.

After the crimson began to fade away, the people left and I was all alone on the beach again, shooting until the last dot of color was gone from the sky. A bit of that fiery red is still visible in the far right and the colors were still very bold at this point, but it wasn't long after this that the only light between me and the pier was the the flashlight on my phone and the planes overhead.

I arrived here in no hurry and with very little expectations other than the hope for a nice sunset and a new place to shoot. I ended up being the last person to leave the beach and I returned a half dozen times over the next month hoping for a repeat sky that never came.
