With all the time I've spent at the beach, almost none has been in the evening. I took my stepson to his late afternoon lacrosse practice, and took myself to this nearby fishing pier that is the only one on this part of the coast that I know of. Lacrosse practice or not, I'll be returning more often. The pastels of evening are too gorgeous to miss, and offer a rare argument to me in favor of making a color photograph. I despise saturated, hyper-chromatic, high dynamic range imagery, but the gentle, muted, sweet colors of evening suggest a very different mood. Sadly, I am not gifted with normal color perception, so I rarely try to do work in that medium. What's presented here is the next best thing I can offer.
