The afternoon at Casperson Beach, FL began with lots of shapeless, dark gray clouds. While I normally would have left the area, my intuition told me to stay. And then it happened: The clouds on the horizon began to clear just before sunset, providing the opportunity that I hoped for. The optimum time to take a photograph with color in the sky is usually momentary. This time was different; the color seemed to last quite long time, as the sky turned to a bright orange. As the sun drifted below the horizon, the sky continued to explode in color. Needless to say, it was a stunning experience and I was able to get varied compositions.
