I live in Eastern Malibu on what they call a wet beach since you can only walk on it at low tide. But when that happens and the light is right, it can be a magical time to walk as you make your way through the exposed barnacle-covered rocks dodging the incoming tide as you go.
A last look on March 11, 2015 from Las Flores Beach just before it got too dark to take photos. Malibu had been in the grip of a rather persistent marine layer all day until it dissipated right before sunset revealing some beachcombers on Dog Beach, Point Dume and a magnificent Turner Sky.
This was a singular moment the day after New Year’s while walking on the beach near Big Rock at low tide. The winter sun suddenly appeared below the cloud cover before setting and the beach erupted with light and color. It only lasted for a few minutes and then it was dark.
