Coming home from a big camping trip to Yosemite at the end of September, we happened upon a town that was a pleasant surprise as it was not part of our travel plans. Rather than driving up the I-5 to return to Canada, we decided to go back to the Oregon Coast and revisit some of our favourite spots from last year. Crescent City California is a mere 20 miles south of the border between California and Oregon. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches, the jetty and pier, sandpipers and pelicans, great food and were treated to one of the best sunsets ever.
This shot was taken only 10 minutes after the previous shot. The big cloud sank and it got quite a bit darker dramatically changing the sunset in a matter of minutes. Also the lights came on brightening up the lighthouse.
