    What a beautiful place. And great video. i love the colours the sun gives off when it is starting to set, when day is turning to night. Also, the blue waves coming in over the beach. beautiful!

    The music is so fantastic in this video! It reminded me of a movie – a thriller type!! Fantastic spot to illustrate – especially like the fire. 🙂

  • Nicole Anderson

    Simply flawless. Just beautiful in the shooting, music and editing. I have no idea how long this took from start to finish but the finished product is so polished and effective. The colors, mood, and images just makes me want to be there, experiencing this wonderful place now. It is a tribute to you and your talent.

    Beautiful video as always! Your editing is so smooth. I loved the dissonance in the music here. It gave the video a very dramatic feel.

  • This is so professional! Did you use a drone for the birdseye shots? I have to echo what everyone’s already said – definitely getting thriller film-type vibes from the music!

    Such a lovely post to come across today! This is really an excellent video! My husband and I met in Orange County. I lived there for 7 years. Ironically, today we live in the beautiful village of the same name in a different part of the world. You should come to San Clemente, Ecuador to make a video of the stunning, fishing village 😀

    Looks beautiful – will definitely need to go here for sure. I’m down in Orange County two weekends out of every month and I’m always looking for new places to explore down there.

    Such a beautiful video with some great footage. The sun setting over the San Clemente Pier made for the perfect background for the local caught on film. The music made it seem so suspenseful idea for a landscape shot in a movie. Thanks for sharing.

    I wish I wish in socal! The best pier around me is Pier 39 in San Francisco. However, I actually love Pier 14, which is closer to “South Beach” in the city. Glorious view of the bay and the Bay Bridge!
