Flew in to Los Angeles for a week of vacation. Stayed a few days in Santa Monica, including a hike in the Santa Monica mountains. After LA my girlfriend and I began our traveling with the first stop being the southern end of Big Sur along the coast.

We arrived at our hotel on a cliff perched about 300 feet above the Pacific Ocean. After a nice dinner at the hotel my girlfriend decided it was time to relax for the evening, so I got in the car and set off in search of photo opportunities.

I was met with a sky that was almost completely devoid of clouds, but as the sun started setting, a line of clouds appeared close to the horizon. Combined with the haze that had been hanging around all day, the setting sun began to create some great soft oranges and purples. I found a spot I liked and set up shop and began to shoot.

This image was created from two exposures, one for the foreground and another for the sky, blended together in post.

Gorgeous light and colors, and I love the depth of this scene and how the composition leads my eyes into the distance. Awesome capture! :)
