These photos were taken at Hole in the Wall beach (aptly named for the big hole you see below!) about 7 miles north of Santa Cruz on December 9th. I took my birthday to catch up on errands and take a bunch of photos. It was not the "perfect sunset day" but I am really happy with the two photos below.
