The last rays of sunlight peeked though the clouds, bathing the Malibu Pier and the hills in the distance. The waves were small, which allowed lots of light to reflect off the water and the sand. The sunset behind the camera was excellent with lots of color in the clouds, but I liked the light on the pier even more.   Many times, it is best to point the camera away from a nice sunrise or sunset because the light will be superb on the land and sea opposite from the sun.  I also like how the small bits of seaweed cast long shadows on the sand.
