15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Last rays of light shining on the California landscape, wildlife,and onlookers.

Setting up camp with my husband, I stepped away to enjoy the last bit of light on the California coast. I looked down the coastline and noticed we weren't the only ones taking in this beauty. Three people stood and watched as the sun dipped lower and lower. I started taking photos of what I saw and was most pleased with this one as it also captures a bird gliding by.
