Not every day we get to have spectacular sunset (or sunrise for that matter) when we step out the door. The sun was shining when I arrived at the beach while the clouds were lurking not too far away. While I scouted a location and set up my camera, the clouds moved and eventually blotted out the sun. Sometimes diffused sunlight is the source of light to work with, and although a gorgeous sunset no longer exists, that is fine. The warm hue lingered for a bit till it didn’t, and I did my best taking advantage of that. Before the light completely disappeared on me, I was able to capture the soft, lovely glow illuminating on the glistened rocks.
