I went to Pismo Beach last night to photograph the Christmas tree at the end of the pier during the low tide. It was cloudy and I didn't expect much of a sunset but the sunset turned out to be spectacular. It grew redder and redder as the sky darkened. Suddenly the clouds parted a bit and the crescent moon and Venus glowed through them. It was a stunning sight.
