Sunset at Rincon Point with a line of headlights on the 101 freeway and something unknown in the sky.
Rincon Point State Beach is located on the Santa Barbara and Ventura County line in California. To any surfer worth his salt it needs no introduction and is instantly recognizable even in silhouette.
I snapped the photos featured here on January 3, 2012 and captured above what I assume is a rocket or missile launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, which is located in northern Santa Barbara County. Although I have not been able to confirm that anything was in fact launched, and whatever it was looks deceptively closer to Rincon Point than Vandenberg, with a smoky plume like that I cannot think of anything else it could have been.
Another day at the office: eleven time world surfing champion, Kelly Slater, working late at Rincon.
love the colors , beautiful shot mate.
I was just reading about Rincon in a surf mag, after this post I’ve definitely got to check it out. You happened to catch Slater ripping? Awesome!
Great shot of the con! That is really cool with the missile in the background.
