"Pescadero Sunset"
Location: Pescadero State Beach, Pescadero, San Mateo County, California.

The sunbeams peeking out of breaking storm clouds are always fun to photograph. Especially during a fast moving storm you can actually see the beams scanning the horizon... a truly awesome sight to see during winter months in California.

Tech Info and Tip:
Lens: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L at 50mm
Camera: Canon 5D Mk II
Exposure: 1/3sec at f/9 and ISO 50
Filters: SinghRay ND Grads 3 stops hard edge

The clouds that are not too dense and not too sparse make the best lighting in my limited experience shooting thse incredible sunbeams.g
