Our hosts George and Carol live across the street from this amazing stretch of coastline, so it was delightful one evening to just walk over there with our supplies and take in the wonder of it all. The sun was washing over everything in that saturated golden light and there were very few actual dark values. It has a certain dreamlike quality because of that and serves to 'take you away' with it on some kind of golden cloud. Carslbad is certainly a lovely spot on God's green earth and the quality of air and light are equally sumptuous. Mmmmm, good.
