Off into the sunset

We visited Santa Marta, Columbia on our vacation back in May. This shot of the lighthouse on Isla El Morro was one of the last frames of the day as we set sail for our next port.

As the sun sets on 2015, we find our itinerant photographer opening a fresh can of cliché… This photo is literally the sunset on December 31, so while clichéd, it is fitting and accurate.

I’ve shot this scene before, but it’s one I really like and I enjoyed the moment of being there on the beach watching the sun sink into the ocean for the last time in 2015. The sun, beach and ocean don’t care – it’s just us people who place a greater significance on this event at this time – the last sunset of the year.

I look forward to the coming year and hope that it finds you well.

Cheers!

Surprise Cactus

November was quite the change of pace for us. We traveled to southern California for a birthday party, then out to the Phoenix, Arizona (nearer Surprise, actually) to visit a couple friends. Then back to Ventura County for Thanksgiving, then back home.

I have always had a deep affection for the American Southwest. Wide open spaces, cactus and sagebrush make me a happy man. The saguaro cactus in particular reminds me of Sergio Leone movies (even though there aren’t any saguaro cactus in Italy), and in my imagination I can totally see a lone gunslinger on horseback, making his way to the next trading post. I guess that’s one of the reasons I really like this region – it is easy to imagine what it was like 150 years ago.

On the drive back home, we ran into an unexpected snow storm just before we got home. After three weeks of comparatively warm weather, surprise, indeed.
