Every year we throw a New Years Eve party at the beach. We count down to midnight GMT time which conveniently happens to be 4 PM here in San Diego. This shot was taken a bit after sunset and the temperature had dropped to about 62F, which for us San Diegans, is brutally cold (note the ski jackets and hats).
In case you're curious, I'm 3rd from the right in the above shot in the ski jacket, shorts, and barefoot. There are actually a bunch of children at this party too, but they're always running hither and thither and never seem to end up in any the party pictures.
After drinking copious amounts of champagne, we carefully set the sun into the water for the last time of the year...
...pack up, and head off to other parties.
