Winter Sunset in Santa Monica
Private Tour Walk on the Beach at Sunset
Sunsets in the winter here in Los Angeles are spectacular. Cooler temperatures mean clearer air near the ocean and the more southerly sunset illuminates the clouds in spectacular fashion. This photograph of the Santa Monica Pier came to us from a friend drawn to the shore as the light waned while we were nearby on a private Los Angeles tour of the beaches enjoying the same exquisite view. Another advantage of visiting Los Angeles in the winter (besides the great weather and southern sunsets) is that the beaches are quiet. We get them almost to ourselves as we explore Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu. It is a great time to visit Los Angeles.
