Visiting the beach to photograph the sunset… very original idea right? It is a benefit to live close to the beach and jump on your bicycle to simply try it. Took the sturdy tripod out for a spin and took my chances for beach sunset.

The ingredient needed for a nice sunset photo are clouds in my opinion. A correct balance between clouds and clear sky to fill the frame and show off the sunset. Reflection in the water clearly took my interest and helped to fill the complete frame of the picture. At first the weather did not seem to play along… but right during the last 30 minutes the orange and pink colors appeared and it was game-on with the longer exposures.

Friendly asked the ladies with there horses to pose against the stunning light. Something I did not anticipated on and turned out really well!

So sunset + beach is a 100% go!
