Golden Cove stormy sunset - Palos Verdes

Shooting in the rain is always a gamble. It’s usually cold and windy, and you’re gonna get wet. There is also a big possibility of the sky just clouding over. But on the other hand it can produce unique conditions not normally seen. This is golden hour from golden cove in Palos Verdes this past Tuesday. Waves were big and the tide was rising so the water was being pushed up further onto the rocks than I had ever seen which meant a new comp opportunity. Waves were coming in from the channel to the left, and overflowing from my right causing the opposing ripples in front of me so I used it as my leading lines. The sky cleared just enough to let some nice golden color through, while still pouring rain out in the distance. Everything got wet from the rain and the mist, but this shot made it worth it. And yea, the sky lit up with an awesome orange at sunset but it was all behind me being blocked by the cliff. Still satisfied with this golden hour shot. Always remember to dry your gear off and make sure to get all the salt off your equipment.
