Stunning sunset, Donna!
Awesome silhouette and vibrant colors. #1156159

Kathryn Wesserling July 18, 2009

I agree. Smart of you to stay down on the beach to take the shot. Seeing all the other watchers made this an Event, instead of 'just' another scene. #7753895

Robert S. Grauer July 24, 2009

Stunning, amazing colors, wow, just like everyone else said before me! I have an idea for this shot not sure if it will work but how about lighting up the pier lights. I know you have the photoshop ability to do this. What do you think? Bob G. #7778846

Martha R. Mazon level-classic January 18, 2020

Fabulous lines, silhouettes, colors and mood, Donna! I also love the contrast of the static pier supports behind the crashing waves. Magnificent. #11790056
