I am lucky enough to live near the Pacific Ocean, and I was always fascinated by the beauty of the nature, especially during fleeting sunsets.

To catch just the right moment for the photo; especially if you need clouds in the sky; takes some preparation, equipment and luck. Some of these photos were pure luck – being there at the right time and right place, but some took weeks of planning.

Here are some of my favorite photos – enjoy!
