Another WoW from me, Kathleen! This is stunning - beautiful sunset tones that glow but also a terrific action shot, and even a seagull! I love it!

Sorry to hear about your summer (I wondered where you were - thought it was a photography jaunt) I'm just catching up on my commenting having been laid up with a bad back. Acadia sounds like fun - will check in when you get back.

Thanks everyone! In answer to the questions about where this is, this was taken on the beach at Pismo Beach during Light Workshops California photo festival. Hal and Victoria Schmitt did a great job of lining up fabulous instructors! There were two evening sessions of horses on the beach. They are doing it again next year in October and I highly recommend everyone think about going. Great instructors and great value! #8983490
