This has to be one of my favourite sunsets of all time.
It was the first shot when I hit the beach yesterday (there are more to come). It looks stunning straight off the iPhone. I’ve added a couple of little tweaks to bring out the colours, the original was a little too warm, auto-tone cooled it nicely. BUT simply no point in going overboard with this one, it’s something very special 🙂
The lens flare off of the sun, well, it’s as it came off the camera … Celestial awesomeness, just heavenly …

Looks as you have been busy , my friend. Happy for you ! I am sad for Angie who seems to have dropped from the blog. Mark has not heard from her either. She was so sweet and enjoyed the interaction!
Hey Anne … and yes, keeping busy on the blog, will be so for the foreseeable …
I had an email from Angie saying she’d be locked out of her blog and WordPress had refused to help … I did think about starting a petition, but literally just didn’t get the chance … also she didn’t reply to my last email …
Another gorgeous sunset Don, its beautiful! 🙂
Thanks hun 🙂
WAUW!!! yes in screaming capitals!! My god I love sunsets and this one is amazing!!
Thanks Joyce, it is a nice one, that I’m certain of 🙂
Wow look at those rays… you nailed it! Beautiful. Almost purple sky. Thanks for the like on my blog. I tend not to use the like function myself, but i appreciate knowing you paid me a visit. ^_^
Thanks, and I’m very pleased with this one 🙂 … A like or a comment is the same for me, just means someone took the time to show appreciation which is what matters …
Yes! Just know that i look at all your photos and posts even thou i don’t always comment. You are the only blogger i actually follow. ^_^
🙂 thanks, then I guess I must be doing something right … comment and like as and when you want, for me just happy to see a friendly face once in while …
Perfect, indeed. UNREAL.
Thanks Robby 🙂
I love that your photos are from your iPhone. I haven’t mastered that skill. You do a wonderful job. Also, I am working on mastering post processing. I think I’m holding myself back, and I just have to go for it. One thing…if you work with a copy, your original is always there to do something else with. Thanks for the inspiration to get back to my photography.
I love it Don!! It’s my favorite of the ones I’ve seen of yours so far too. The reflection cast across the water and on the sand, not to mention the sun going behind the clouds casting the rays….it’s beautiful!! Nice job!
Thanks Laura, and that’s exactly what I’m looking at when I’m editing … really pleased with this one, it’s just a great capture 🙂
Beautiful photo. Love the colors!
Thanks hun, I’m very pleased with this one 🙂
You must be on the west coast. I love the beach! Have lived along the MIssissippi Gulf coast and the North Carolina Atlantic coast. That one is just gorgeous!
Thank you 🙂 Thailand ?

fantastische Aufnahme ,das Meer rauscht ..
Danke 🙂 Thanks for the reblog 🙂
That IS a good one!! You should see the snow where I am! It’s nice to look at a beach picture. Enjoy!
I can imagine I’ve lived in some very cold parts of the UK, snow is fun for a short while but soon gets tiresome 🙂
This is beautiful. Which beach is this?
Thanks hun 🙂

Very nice shot. I love sunset, it’s a special moment, and this shot captures it perfectly, thanks.
Thanks Daniel, I really like the way it turned out 🙂
This is nice to see–a good reminder that warmer weather still exists. It is below zero here.
Ah yes the western winter … used to enjoy it as a kid, but grows tiresome with age … it’s been quite reasonable here, not too hot or could be that I’m just acclimatised …
Nothing like a sunset over the ocean. Really spectacular! ~SueBee
Thanks SueBee, I’m really pleased with this one 🙂
Great shot. Glad to have checked the WordPress reader for updates before traveling to Dream Land. It’s a peaceful image to install in one’s head before bed.
Hadn’t though of it that way, you are the king of lateral thinking 🙂
awesome sunset. May I ask where in Thailand this was taken?
Thanks dude 🙂
I guess its a secret ;-(
Wow! This is so beautiful! Brilliant!
Thank you !
Gorgeous! Meanwhile, back at the ranch, ice-cycles hang precariously from my window sill.
Sounds like some good photos Ice-cycles … still I’m sure you prefer a tropical setting 🙂
Yes………yes I do : (
