Here’s Week 25 of the 52-week Photo Challenge. The challenge for week 25 is Portrait; specifically, Silhouette. For this week’s challenge, I decided to use one of the shots that I took of Sowmya at Carmel-by-the-Sea during Sunset.
We decided to spend a day in the Monterey Bay as Sowmya’s mom was visiting us and we wanted to take her to Monterey Pier, 17-Mile Drive, and the surrounding areas. We had a lot of fun during the day both at Monterey Pier as well as 17-Mile Drive. My thought was to head to Point Lobos State Park of Sunset. I have been there before and it is simply gorgeous. What I didn’t know was that the State Park closed at 7. The sunset was past 8 that day. So, we were scrambling to figure out where to go for sunset and decided to go to Carmel. I was worried that parking will be difficult but we got lucky. We got parking pretty close to the beach.
The sunset from Carmel was simply spectacular. One of the best we have seen. Before we headed back, I took this shot of Sowmya and it turned out great.
