Applauding for Mother Nature - Sunset at Captiva Beach

This photo is showing a group of people in backlight waiting for the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico at Captiva Beach in Southwest Florida. This evening the clouds had the shape of an enormous feather. Sunset are always special in the Sunshine State. Every evening locals and tourists alike come together at the beach with their loved ones to celebrate Mother Nature. When the sun is finally down, everybody stands in awe applauding loudly.
