la jolla sunset

 

 

This is the first sunset of a series. I grew up in a beach town north of San Diego, California. The Pacific Coast in California has a quality of light – a clarity and a moisture haze and an intensity – that washes everything in a glow and warmth. The last months of summer this year and then the encroachment of a New England darkness autumn-to-wintor made that memory of warmth and light particularly intense for me.
