Pacific Sun Sprite
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”. For the full story on this image visit the corresponding page on Where Eagles Fly
