15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunset on Mobile Bay
It had been a rather cloudy evening on the beach and I was not sure if it had been worth the trip to come watch the sunset. The clouds weren't budging and the color simply wasn't there. As my family and I were packing up and preparing to leave, the sun suddenly came into view and the clouds split for this amazing display at the last moment. It was not the typical rainbow colors that one expects with an island sunset, but the stormy sky actually added to the beauty as the sun reflected itself in its thick shadows. It was unusual and completely awe-inspiring. I had no need to use any filters.
