Fabulous landscape, Nikki! I'm so impressed you were able to move the sandpiper--but aside from that, the colors and tones are so beautiful, the composition is perfect ... I also tried to comment on a recent landscape (also of Morro Bay) but BP froze up and I lost it. ANYWAY, congratulations on a fantastic finalist!! :D #4709262

This is just one of many sunset photos I took on a beach north of Morro Bay, CA, one evening in July. Moved the sandpiper out from the shadow/reflection of the rock and applied a buZZ filter.
