Sunset at Del Mar Beach in Camp Pendleton, California.
Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: Cherry on Top.
Our instructions: This week, share a photo of a detail that makes a good thing even better.
I’m rarely without a camera. Whether it’s my Big Heavy (my Nikon D800), my little traveling camera, or just my iPhone, a camera is my extra appendage. On the last night of our California vacation, my daughter and I took a walk along the beach at sunset, and I snapped photos. She got tired of waiting for me, and ran ahead to chase the seagulls. I didn’t pay very much attention to the birds, I just kept snapping. Later, when I looked at all of the sunset photos I took that evening, this one stood out. Because of the birds. They added the perfect exclamation point to the end of a beautiful day at the beach.
