Carpinteria Sunset:  It was a beautiful evening when I took this photo.  The winds were calm and the evening warm.  As the sun slowly sinks into the ocean, it turns the waves, beach and sky into a beautiful warm orange color.

Carpinteria, California is a small town about 30 minutes south of Santa Barbara.  It is renowned for its sunsets, tranquility and Dutch flower growers.  Copyright 1997.
