It takes just the right conditions to get these photos of the sun setting between the Twin Rocks. I have had good luck on our fall visits, twice taking similar photos on the autumnal equinox, which has special significance.
I was a little early this year. The equinox, the last day of summer, first day of fall, is September 23rd, this Friday.
But last week the conditions were right, and we set out about 7:00 to find the right spot with the right alignment. On the way I couldn't resist shooting this wonderful sand castle that someone had build during the day.
The sun fit into the notch in the rock.
And down it goes.
And into the ever present fog bank.
A look back before calling it a day and heading to the cabin to settle in.
