Misty Mandalay

“It was freezing cold for southern California,” writes Your Shot member Toshi Miyamoto, who attempted to keep his triplets entertained while awaiting the inevitable beauty of sunset over a beach shrouded in mist. He had been driving with his wife and children along Mandalay Beach in Oxnard when he saw the scene’s potential. “I knew that day’s sunset was going to be a special one. We had an amazing time playing there.”

Miyamoto's picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
