An unforgettable sunset at Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California. A week long photography trip to California was capped off with perfect sunset photography conditions at this iconic location at the Scripps Pier. I have seen more than a few images at this location, but few of them have truly amazing colors. We showed up in late afternoon and the beginning of the setting sun was already producing stunning light. The sunset lasted for hours and evolved through every imaginable color, and included some massive sunbeams as well.
