20140811-Untitled_Panorama1I didn’t get out in my boat tonight. Instead I decided to head out to Cox bay for the sunset.

The cloud structure looked interesting! I walked the beach looking for photo opportunities,but found few. As the clouds started to turn reddish I looked around frantically for any surfers & than found two walking towards me! I rushed up to them & asked if I could take shots of them as they walked?

They agreed thankfully! The cloud colour & structure was fantastic! The beach had a layer of water on it that acted like a mirror! When the tide is high,the water permeates down into the sand.The entire beach fills up like a huge bowl.So when the tide goes out,all of that water begins to drain back down the beach. This water layer really adds drama to a beach scene! So it’s better to shoot the sunset when it’s low tide rather than high!

Had a great sunset beach shoot tonight! I never know when the sunset is going to “GO”,but if your not around & prepared,your not going to be able to take advantage of it!
