The sun sets on a Carpinteria beach (12/29/2013)

Videographer Geoff Minger emailed this radiant image, taken on “one of the last beautiful, balmy days of 2013,” he told us. Down at the end of Linden Avenue on December 29, he had found a group of Carpinterians basking at the beach in the warm winter sun. He added that he was “very surprised by the results of this iPhone shot. What a great way to end 2013 and to welcome the New Year!” We couldn’t agree more.
