El Matador State Beach

On Sunday afternoon I decided to take the 5D Mark II out for a shoot. I’m still getting to know this camera, and thought a trip to El Matador State Beach. To my surprise I ran into 7 or 8 other photographers who were arriving about the same time. We didn’t have the best weather for spectacular sunsets (not a cloud in the sky) but there are always good images to be made here. This is my second time visiting this little gem off the Malibu coast, and no doubt I will be back again and again. Here are some images from yesterday’s shoot:
