It was April 8; Four rather restless photographers followed the setting of the sun to Southwick Beach Park in hopes of catching an amazing sunset. Being one of those photographers, I too got wrapped up in the moment searching for a good sunset shot. After pacing back and forth a long the beach front and some of the surrounding area looking for a good place to set up my tripod I selected the one which allowed me to compose the trunk of a partially submerged tree and some driftwood into the same scene.
The waters of Lake Ontario had become choppy and started to churn more violently as the sun started to set and the sand from the beach began migrating in small wisps as the wind of the lake kicked-up. Reluctant to leave until I had captured the image that I wanted, I remained at my camera, shivering occasionally, in spite of the rapidly dropping temperatures, dwindling day light and inhospitable conditions.The result after more than two weeks of editing, walking away and editing again is the image in this post of the Southwick Beach Sunset. Although, I have been told that it is a beautiful capture, I still feel that I have not captured the essence of that sunset. But, I guess that is just me.
