A cloudless sunset on an empty, trackless beach with a crescent moon drifting downward, following the sun. The last rays of sunlight paint the sea cliffs and surf in hues of orange, while seagulls make a circling descent to the rocks below. And the sun takes one last peak through a crevice in Klooqueh Rock before sinking into the sea. What a perfect ending to the day!
