Storm brewing off Point Vicente by 

This is Point Vicente Lighthouse (decorated for the holidays) at the tip of Palos Verdes Peninsula, California. On this day I was hoping for a few good sunset shots, but a storm was rolling in quickly and hid the setting sun. The dim outline of Catalina Island is visible in the distance. Shortly before the light was almost totally gone, a beautiful formation of birds flew over! (Olympus E-510 & 14-45mm zoom at 39mm, f/5.6, 1/60 sec., ISO 400, cloudy, handheld)

Also available with either of two greetings!
