I captured this image after racing to the beach for the sunset. I missed the sunset by minutes due to a terrible accident on the roadway. It was quite an adventure getting down to the beach, which even included a rope. The water was crazy and uneven, eventually soaking me up to my knees.

    You have spotted such a beautiful place and this is captured so well..I can feel the water coming to me here…

  • Thanks so much Harmeet! I do intend on returning to this place as many times as possible. Virtually no one knows about it, so it’s quiet and untouched. Just a bit of a climb down a cliff to get there. :)
