Hermosa Beach, California21 August 2003

The scene at Hermosa beach was at once chaotic and peaceful (rollover) as the sun set over the Pacific. Near the water, people were walking, boogie-boarding, practicing tai chi, or just sitting. Closer to the boardwalk, games of volleyball and flag football kicked up the sand into the night.

I spent the night in a nearby hotel between my two days working at the Air Force base up here in LA. The workdays were productive. This evening the weather was perfect, with a light breeze, temperatures in the 70s, and clear skies providing a bright green flash as the sun plunged into the ocean. (Unfortunately, my attempt to photograph the flash missed by a few seconds.)
