Moods of Manzanita: Heated Wind on Summer Beach

Summer of '05 in Manzanita: July 19, at sunset.
The moon is almost full, as dusky colors flood the eastern skies in rich layers. The day was exceptionally warm, but this sundown, around 9 p.m., meant much cooler temperatures. Yet occasionally a heated wind would cut through the cooler air, especially prominent as you got closer to the surf.
In spite of the day having been hot, the water was freezing. More images of Manzanita below:
