Summer is almost here, and I can't wait! The beach is one of those very special places for me. It's a way to de-stress, have some fun, and really embrace the beauty of the ocean. Paradise Pier is such a great foreground to the amazing sunsets that grace the west coast. It blows me away everytime I see a sunset. Yeah, I'm a sucker for them. I always have been, and photographing them never gets old. Long walks on the beach, no thank you. Set up with a tripod in the sand waiting for the sun to go down, now that's my kinda date!
