San Clemente Pier Sunset – San Clemente, CA

This was one of those days where you force yourself to go out and take pictures.  I am glad I did because as usual I was pleasantly surprised.  I photographed the pier from dozens of angles from about an hour before sunset to a half hour after sunset.  This extra half hour of twilight  is really the most spectacular time for these types of sky shots.  Living at the beach, I see dozens of people each night watching the sunset over the pacific and then as soon they hear the sizzle (sun disappearing into the ocean of course) they turn around and go home.  If you have a camera the next thirty minutes is when the sky changes from bright yellow to dark purple and every color in between.  The HDR technique is perfect for these high contrast shots so remember…

About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.
