"Lone Cypress Sunset"
This was one of the best sunsets I've seen on the Central California coast. It looked like a tropical storm!
This image captures one of my favorite moments witnessed along my journey from Delhi to Bali last summer. The night before I took this, a sandstorm howled in Agra, ruining my chances for a sunrise at the Taj Mahal -- or so I thought. The opposite turned out to be true, and the day dawned crystal clear with an incredible sky full of small, puffy clouds. This image was taken just after sunrise.
