Captured facing away from the sunset while on a gently rolling sailboat. I was using a light tripod for stability, and holding it with legs folded and off the deck a couple of inches. This abandoned lighthouse is about 30 miles N E of Cuba. Touched it up a bit using "Nero Photosnap." Leveled a little. Lightened just enough to get desired detail in the foreground. There was a tropical wave moving across Cuba at the time, and the golden light is typical for sunsets when there's a storm to the west.

This is a terrific shot- this is my kind of shot- dreamy, warm, - the clouds are amazing; I wish the land and the lighthouse showed more, a few hundred feet more on each side, but still, when it comes to sunsets, you have such a talented eye for color and values.
