Pacific Sun Sprite

Location Origin Story

A quintessential California Coastal Pacific Ocean Sunset, this image is from the same set of photographs taken one spectacular sunset that produced the image “Point Sur Monument of Light”. An interesting aspect of this photograph is that the sun is actually not in this image at all.

The sun had already set 15 minutes before and was now over the horizon, but an interesting alpenglow effect occurs as the sunlight reflecting on the clouds, is then reflected down onto the ocean below. This creates what Zedekiah calls a “Sun Sprite”.

About This Photograph

This glorious colorful scene was photographed at sunset during the month of May while Zedekiah was hiking along the coast in Big Sur, California.

Image Rarity

The image is taken on the ground in a place others can hike to, meaning it is not that difficult for others to take a similar photograph.

Timing in waiting for the clouds to move into position at exactly the right moment played a critical role in composing this image.

The rarity of this image comes from the composition of the clouds and the alpenglow effect of the sunsprite.
