Sunset(s) in Corona Del Mar

My dry spell of new pictures has finally come to an end!

Corona Del Mar Landscape

I took two students out to Corona Del Mar last week for some sunset landscape sessions (two different days, two different lessons). Both evenings served up great sunsets, so I couldn't resist breaking out my tripod alongside my students.

The first sunset was a bit of a surprise because the clouds didn't form until the last minute...just in time to pick up some nice pink hues from the setting sun.

The next day, the cloud cover was pretty well established at least 2 hours before sunset. I could tell from the atmospheric conditions and the position and shape of the clouds that the sunset was going to be a winner.

As you can see from the pictures, the main focus of both nights was the interesting rock formations and I played with a few different compositions to highlight this land feature. There are only so many angles from which you can attack this subject, so some of the compositions here are pretty similar to those from previous visits. All in all, though, I'm pleased with the results.

It felt great to get behind the camera again. Good riddance, drab summer weather!
