On a recent trip to Mendocino with friends and family, my initial intension was not to take out my camera and spoil the fun for the rest. Initially, my plan sounded reasonable since the entire coast was blanketed in fog for most part of the day. But as it always happens, the fog started clearing right around sunset and luckily I was at a beach inside the Russian Gulch State Preserve.
There was never going to be any explosive colors in the sky, since it was devoid of any clouds. So, instead I concentrated on the details. These group of trees were perfectly illuminated by the setting sun and I oblidged.
