The coastline of Northern California is constantly changing, and always something new to discover. This can be good and bad.On Saturday afternoon, the sky was looking promising for a good sunset, so I decided to head out with my camera. I chose Panther Beach, which was one of my favourites from last because of the interesting rock formations.However, on arriving at the beach, I was initially disappointed to noticed that the rocks that I was going for were completely covered in sand. The sand level seemed to be 3-4 feet higher than it was last year.However, on the positive side, this now meant I could get onto rock shelves at the north end of the beach which were inaccessible last year.While exploring those rock shelves, the sky was looking good. But, then, in came the marine layer, threatening to engulf the beach in fog. So, then it appeared that the anticipated sunset was going to be a bust.But, as the light was starting to fade, the fog pulled back revealing the last of the sunset - a thin vibrant red glow just above the horizon. Fortunately, the changing conditions came through for me!
