A Couple at Sunset
The light in California is amazing. I lived there for three years while in photo school and it took me a few months until I could formulate what I felt: the light is just amazing. Every evening I would adore the setting sun for the show it gave as it went on its way to the other side of the globe. On this very evening I was by the pier in Ventura, photographing something completely different when I suddenly turned and saw dramatic the pier looked. The sun silhouetted the whole structure, creating wonderful shadows that fell on the water, the little surfing cove served as background (if you look closely you can actually find some surfers). Everything was set and all I had to do was wait for the couple to be framed just right by the two lamp posts.
