Seat-of-the-Pants Sunset

Sunset, Crescent City, California

It was a classic photographer's dilemma; the sun dropping toward the horizon and we were in a new town with no idea of a good place for sunset. A quick check of the maps, and a chat with a local or two, produced a couple of ideas -- but none panned out.  So instead, we went on instinct and raced towards a cluster of distant seastacks.  Just in time: we found a spot just moments before the sun disappeared behind an unexpected cloud. Not a prizewinner, but not bad for a last-minute save.  Now it was time to see if the Mexican restaurant was still open.
