This is a composite of three completely separate exposures captured within minutes. The sky, the ocean and the foreground were all combined in PS CS4. Captured last night at sunset. Several adjustments made in the darkroom.

Whoa! Not only is this a beautiful sunset but the reflection of it is even on the beautiful smooth stones. Amazing image, Donna!

This has staying power in my mind, along with the composition, which Brenda Tharp tried to teach us. Not to mention the colors and tonality. Beautiful POV and capture, Donna.

This is one of my all-time favorites of your work. ~Bunny
