A wonderful sunset at Pt. Mugu State Beach. The beauty of the waves and the rocks and the sky that night were amazing.
Named by Magellan, Mar Pacifico, it means Peaceful Ocean. It is the worlds largest ocean at 63.8 million square miles and contains about 46% of the Earths water surface. (Wikipedia)
This was the first time I visited this beach, usually passing it by to go to one of the other beaches in the area. I was surprised at the beauty and the numerous places to photograph. those islands off the coast are the Channel Islands National Park, Anacapa.

Hello Karen,
This is an amazingly beautiful scene. I fully agree with Christodoulos and the others above. Rather than repeat what they have already said, I will just sit back and enjoy. You should really have it on display in your home and wherever else. Very well done indeed.

Hello Karen
Superb image with fantastic clarity and colour.
Love it.

Hello Karen,
Wonderful sunset in splendid colours and a great composition. Waves and clouds are in a beautiful balance.

Hello Karen,
Pt. Mugu State Beach is certainly a beautiful public area to visit as is evident by this gorgeous shot. I love the pastel colors and the attractive composition you chose, including sand, boulders, water and sky. The way the colors of the sunset are reflected in the wet sand is a real bonus.
I remember a few years ago Rosie and I were in California and had a hard time just trying to get to the beach. We were not familiar with the area and it seemed like everything oceanfront was privately owned, so just finding access took some time. We ended up finding a spot at Laguna Beach between Los Angeles and San Diego, and had a great time.
