When you head to Marshalls Beach in San Francisco it's hard to ignore how the Golden Gate Bridge. It's right there, in front of you, screaming for your attention. There aren't many beaches that get much closer to it. OK, maybe I lied a little bit: you might be drawn to the nudists who dot the beach, but the bridge is right there!
So let me say it felt a little bit weird when Willie and I turned our backs to the Golden Gate Bridge and instead focused our attention on the fallic looking sea stacks that dot the far end of the beach. We had hoped the clouds would stick around for sunset and give us a nice colorful sky, but alas, Mama Nature toyed with us and the clouds disappeared as the sun faded from view. It did, however, provide a nice little stretch of orange and red sky, while the waves crashed into the rocks and provided nice movement in the foreground.
