Lets shoot sunset and Blue hour post sunset at this location. Here is a picture from the spot of this meetup:

Sunsets near the coast are foggy many days, but there is a good chance of getting a nice Blue Hour shot as long as its not raining. A colorful sunset will be the icing on the top at this spot. The exact location in Capitola will be mailed to those selected for the meetup from the lottery. A total of 8 people will attend ( 6 patrons, and 2 non patrons) - picked by a lottery. Those selected will be informed 3 days before the meetup (by Thursday night).

Attendance is limited to 8 members. A lottery ( will be held on April 11 from those who have signed up on the waitlist by then, and selection preference will be given to supporters/donors (6 out of 8).

A waiting list is available in the likely event of cancellations. When there is a cancellation, Meetup automatically notifies the next eligible person on the wait list.
