Dusk at the Beach

I’ve taken my fair share of sunset photographs during each travel and the one common denominator among each photo op has been that the best ones have resulted through repetition over the span of 30 minutes. By composing at least 50 shots, you have a better chance of being pleased with at least 5 or 10 out of all of them.

The trick is to try to predict a sunset before it happens and the photographs you’ll be more impressed with will be the ones where the sun has already settled below the horizon. With the Canon SD1100 protected in the underwater housing, I took this photograph on our last day of our family vacation in El Salvador.
