“Sunset at Paine’s Creek Beach and Landing”

That is what happened to me this particular evening at Paine’s Creek Beach & Landing in Brewster on Cape Cod, Mass.
One of my favorite places to photograph, I arrived here in the early afternoon – hours before sunset. Light clouds on the horizon were telling me there could be a nice sunset later in the evening.
Once the sun started setting, the light and color started reflecting off the clouds and it kept getting more colorful and more intense as each minute passed. I barely even noticed the thousands of no-see-ums practically eating me alive while photographing this amazing scene.
Easily one of the best sunsets I ever saw and had the chance to photograph on Cape Cod in the 7 years I lived there.
Photographed back in 2004 with a Canon 1Ds and 24-70mm lens at 4s at f13 with the use of split neutral density filters to control the exposure and dynamic range of the scene.
