Paddle Surfers in the Sunset: Landscape Photograph

There was beautiful clouds in the sky last night which gave a layered effect of color; the colors were much more dramatic after the sun passed the horizon. Shortly after most of the visitors left the beach there was a group of paddle surfers that came through the Cape Henlopen Bay. I wasn't ready to leave yet so I stayed and watched the surfers approach the beach. As I watched them paddle in I thought a few motion silhouettes of the surfers would look pretty cool in setting sun, so I tried to get a few shots in. This one is my favorite.

Paddle Surfers in the Sunset is a tranquil landscape photograph of sunset on the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park located in Lewes, Delaware. The scene has several paddle surfers coming into shore from their journey across the bay. In the background there is a beautiful sky full of clouds that catch a variety of colors from the sunlight. Colors of this image include purples, pinks, oranges, yellows and black.
