A calm evening at the beach

These shots were taken the other week on a calm evening on the beach at sunset.

I decided to shoot on a mostly sandy area of the beach though.

Here is a shot taken well after sunset on a long exposure on a flat rocky part

Here is some sand just after sunset

Re: A calm evening at the beach

Pretty nice 'whots'.

EDIT: Yes, I think they're nice shots too.

Re: A calm evening at the beach

I always enjoy your work Alf, even though I don't comment on it as often as I should. It is great to see your spectacular sunsets over the sea as they are rather hard to find here on the east side of the country. Keep up the good work.
