Pacific Eruption by AndrewShoemaker Pacific Eruption by AndrewShoemaker
"Pacific Eruption"
This was one of the most intense sunsets that I've ever witnessed and it happened to be over a spot that had eluded me for a while.  I had set out to this other worldly location several times hoping for a great sunset to reflect in the pools of water.  Time after time, the marine layer would come in and I wouldn't get much of a sunset and then I'd leave disappointed.  The clouds looked promising late one afternoon so we decided to head to La Jolla and I camped out on this spot with no idea what was about to happen.  Initially I thought I was going to get skunked again as the sun dipped below the horizon and then boom!  The sky suddenly erupted with red and purple tones and I don't ever remember being so excited for a sunset.  How bittersweet it was and the best things come to those with patience :)  Please feel free to leave me a comment, critique, or share this image.  Follow the link below to view a higher quality image on my website or contact for print information.
