Ride at the Orange County Fair

When turning the corner at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, CA I was taken aback by the silhouettes of the ski lift ride and its riders against the backdrop of the sky, which was beautifully lit by the setting sun. The scene was ethereal and I was happy and grateful to capture the moment.
