As the sun further dropped and touched the horizon, the glow in the sky got intensified. So did the glow on the ever glistening rocks. I hopped over the rocks down the beach a little bit and found myself at a spot where the water wasn’t advancing and receding too much. I wanted to get that ever intensifying orange glow of the clouds reflected in the water! The ocean remained still, as if it were frozen in time. As if there were no tides rising or falling. As if there were no interactions between the sun and the moon.
