A late afternoon sun lights up the sky along the California coast. This shot was captured from Fort Barry. I planned to shoot the sunset from this location, but the pre-sunset show proved to be excellent as well.

The Golden Gate Bridge at Twilight The Golden Gate Bridge at Twilight
A great time to shoot illuminated structures is when the light in the sky balances with the light on the structure. This is also typically a great time to shoot completely motion-blurred bodies of water. Both of these features come together at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It was great to capture this moment in time with you Saurabh!

Rodeo Cove Beach Pebbles Rodeo Cove Beach Pebbles
The sand on the Central California Coast beaches seems change color and texture in nearly every cove. The pebble sand in Rodeo Cove qualified as a "texture in nature" for me.

Baker Beach, San Francisco Baker Beach, San Francisco
Baker Beach in San Francisco affords a good view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Here I timed the shot with a wave crashing on the rocks. And then clone stamped all of the footprints out of the sand.
 
Warning to those planning to visit Baker Beach: apparently clothing is optional on the north end of the beach. I learned that the hard way.
