Absolutely beautiful, Randall! What did you use for post processing? It has a little bit of a metallic look. #10003013

Description


This is another image from the spectacular sunset over Port Orford on January 12, with Venus visible in the upper left. It was taken shortly after Red Sky and a little farther down the beach (south). This sunset has to be one of the top 10 that I’ve ever seen. The vivid streaks of color in the sky reflecting on the wet sand and tide pools, the silhouetted sea stacks and rugged coastline, the twinkling lights of Port Orford, all made the scene nothing short of magical!
