These two images show the sun setting behind the towering palm trees near Ventura Harbor. Anyone traveling toward the harbor on Los Olivos Park Drive has probably noticed how nicely they frame the sky.

One evening in July I was close enough to sunset to wait for the magic moment when the clouds, sun and landscape would combine for a compelling image. I took two versions and still haven’t decided which I prefer. One is a class sunset shot. The other pulls back to reveal the strawberry field with plastic covered rows waiting to be planted. The latter is definitely a  uniquely Ventura County image, one you don’t come across anywhere else.

You can find these images in Scenics/Seascapes
