3/31 - Nature & Landscapes
While on a Dolphin Excursion in Destin, Florida,
I was able to capture this AMAZING sunset in the Choctawhatchee Bay. The only editing done on this image was a slight sharpening of the water only. It was a stunning evening.

Exif: F Number: 7, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/6400 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 160, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 22.00 mm, Model: FinePix S7000
