This was the first of many sunset photos I had taken where I thought of the idea to put my camera directly on the sand just outside the waterline. I love the detail in the waves. Many sunset photos don't have so much detail in the waves as seen at the horizon. The water is usually seen as a straight line at the horizon. Somehow it makes the sun seem very small; like a fisherman's bobber in the water.
On a side note, I was happy to see that the compressing of the photo did not lead to "patchy" gradients in the sky. Photo taken March 15, 2009.
