California. Just it's name conjures images of sunshine and sandy beaches. As part of my West Coast series, I had no choice but to honor this omnipresent ingredient of the Californian lifestyle.

We met in Malibu and worked with a setting-sun along one of the most iconic stretches of beach in the world. How could it possibly go wrong?
