PFEIFFER SPARKS - Photo and Comment by Robin Black
For a two-week period each year around the same time as the winter solstice, the setting sun aligns with the portal in the big rock arch at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur. I was fortunate to get clear skies on this evening, which allowed the fiery sunset light to shine through the portal and light up the waves crashing through.

"A Magic Moment"   I was in the world-renowned resort island of Boracay in the Philippines for a class reunion.Walking by the beach at sunset, I heard the rythmic beating of drums. I found out later this was a daily evening ritual by the islanders, to thank the sun for shining on their island.As the sun sank into the horizon, I waited until a boat positioned itself perfectly silhouetted against the golden sky.
