12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Second Beach Sunburst
It took meticulous planning before the day this image was shot to determine when the sun would be aligned behind the hole in the bluffs to create a perfect sunburst at sunset. I didn't have much time to capture this image, as the sun sank fast. To complicate the matter, this was my first time photographing the ocean and setting my tripod up in sand, which I learned will make my tripod sink - an issue for long exposure images such as this one.
