May 23, 2005. Beach, Pacifica.
This is the stretch of beach at the foot of the cliff where I live.
I've been there with camera a million times and until today never managed to make it look sexy. The warm light of sunset improves a lot of bland backdrops. Truth is it's not a very glamorous place, just a long strip of brown sand below crumbling sandstone cliffs. But it's often deserted, and is nearly always a wonderful place for a walk or a jog.
For more than a year it was difficult to access, because a storm had destroyed the access stairs. They're back!
