Pacific Ocean Summer Sunsets – Featured Art Prints

Pacific Sunset

Coastal Sunset

The featured pictures are of a summer sunset over the Pacific Ocean in San Diego County. They are scenes that were captured just minutes apart as the coloring of the clouds changed moment to moment. In these captures, I came back and digitally soften them up just slightly with a very subtle watercolor technique. They still retain the detail of a photograph, but with a barely perceptible softening.

The setting is Northern San Diego County on a hill about three miles from the coast. This was the view from our house and on this particular evening the color of the sky was so vivid and bright, I immediately grabbed my camera. On the second picture you see a dark spot in the sky that looks like it shouldn’t be there. I have the ability to clear that out, but I was curious as to what it was. I magnified that portion of the print and discovered it was a commercial airliner flying the coastal flight pattern between San Diego proper (to the south) and Los Angeles (to the north) or points further north. Because of this I decided to leave the “spot” in.  Thoughts?

    Hi Kirt. That’s interesting about the “spot.” I used to like to imagine all the dozens of different stories about the people aboard when I would look up at a plane.
    Love the vivid colors. Hugs on the wing.

      Thank you very much….I appreciate the feedback!! Most people don’t realize these types of sunsets are a rare treat along the Southern California coastline…..either no clouds to reflect the light off of or the low cloud Marine Layer where you can’t even see the sunset….again thanks for stopping by!!
