Salmon Creek Beach Afterglow

If you were on the Sonoma Coast on 1/4/15, you were treated to this awesome sunset. As a landscape photographer I seek out many things in order to make a great photograph but basically my formula is a trifecta which includes good lighting, an interesting subject and calm winds. Every once in a while nature provides everything I could hope for and much more which leads to special, one of a kind moments like this. This night, the trifecta was present but added to it was a very low tide creating a highly reflective wet sand, a large flushing intertidal pool, a cool cloud structure and even a bird standing still in the distance. My wife and kids were with me too which made it an over the top Pacific sunset.
