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.

Sunset in Boracay, Phillipines - Truly Breathtaking (Double Wow)
Photo and following note by Ning de Guzman
"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.
