It rained a lot today, but mostly cleared up in the afternoon, so I thought it'd be a good time to take the ol' camera down to the beach for sunset. I had trouble parking because of the LA Marathon happening tomorrow, and the sunset itself was pretty much a bust.
I took this shot on the bank of an outlet that was being eroded away with every incoming wave. Because the outgoing drainage was meeting the incoming sea, there were a lot of interesting patterns in the water when I used a slow shutter speed. Not interesting enough in themselves, however, so I framed this shot with the Santa Monica pier and more of the sky, which was also interesting. This view is looking northwest, towards Malibu at the foot of the Santa Monica mountains.
