[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last weekend I made a 2 hour journey to the fantastic Bowling Ball Beach in southern Mendocino county, California. If you are coming to this beach to shoot photographs you are better off coming in the fall or winter. If you show up in the summer the odds are you will run into the famous Mendocino fog. After checking tide charts and the forecast I decided it was worth the effort and wow was I rewarded! Shortly after the sun went down the sky lit up pink and me and a few other light chasing photographers scrambled to find the right composition. I think this one worked out pretty well.
To the right of the comp you can see some of the "bowling balls" that give the beach it's name. I will post other shots later on that feature of a few of the balls.

Interesting place and interesting photo. Wonderful color.

I have posted some shots of this beach also on TN. I got there just before sundown and got some great side light, but I can see I should have stayed a bit longer to see if there was going to be such a nice light show! This is beautiful. Nice work. I would not have thought to go 8 seconds.

Hello Mike,
Very nice capture with interesting low and wide perspective, diagonal composition and appealing colours. I like also this mist hanging further deep in the picture :-)
Best greetings from Poland!

Ohhh, lucky YOU! I live in Mendocino County on the coast and have for over 21 years and have still not made the trek to this awesome beach. I KNEW as soon as I saw it that it was Bowling Ball Beach. Excellent shot; the lighting gives it an interesting glow. TFS.


Très belle image avec une lumière et des couleurs splendides.

Great pov and colours.
