A baseball diamond right along the coast of the Pacific Ocean in San Pedro, California. Shot from the field behind my house one evening after work.

Seriously overcooked in processing. This time of year, in the evenings, things are wonderfully pastel and light. DPC doesn't go for pastel and light, in general, so I overcooked it to add contrast and color. The more I look at it, though, the more I like it.

Mostly likely FAR too busy for a minimal landscape, but it suits my photographic personality.

It's a lovely big view. I like the shadows of the clouds on the water.

Ahhh...this lovely image shows every reason why I love the Pacific so much. I'm sure I even see a dolphin or two out there...;-)
