Photoblog: The world, one image at a time.

a different kind of sunset boulevard…

Sunset Over Highway 1

So, remember that last post?  About the adventuresome trek up and over the mountains on what appeared to be little more than a paved goat path?  And remember how Jay is super great about halting the car whenever I would squeal “photo!!”?  Well, alas.  That goat path winding up and up the mountain afforded beautiful views…like this one!  Its sort of like a different type of Sunset Boulevard, a very abstract interpretation of “a sunset boulevard.”

Picture it:  You’re up on a mountain, overlooking the wild Southern California coast, with the Pacific waves crashing below and not a sole on the road.  You gaze ever-so-slightly northward and your face is gently met with the warm setting rays of the golden sun, dipping below the horizon.  The colors are hues you’ve only ever dreamed of and the mountain-scape is silhouetted against the star of the show that is gracefully bowing out for the night.  As the fading light touches the foggy haze hanging over the ocean, an other-worldly glow fills the foreground of your sight.  Deep blue-purple fades into blazing orange, and you watch as your beacon of the day slips away to give way to a moonlit night.  It is just you, the sky, the mountains, and the sea.

Ok…now look at the photo?  Decent attempt at trying to summarize a photo and all it embodies in less than a thousand words?  Read it again for a brief mental vacation and relaxing “guided imagery” moment!

Of course, taken with the Canon Powershot G12.
