8. thanks!

The coastal weather is such a crap shoot here. I live about 20 minutes south of Trinidad, where this photo was taken. At first I was ambivalent about driving up there after dinner-- the sky over my house was clear and cloud free, not particularly conducive to colorful sunset photos. I watched the clouds begin to blow in from the coast, just wisps of possibility. When I finally thought "this might turn into something nice" it was only about an hour before sunset. Thinking that you can't get the shoot if you're not there when light happens, I jumped in my car and drove to the beach.

At first I was disappointed by the offshore fog bank. At best it would mask the horizon in my shots, and at worst it would move ashore and create bland grey skies and shadowless landscapes, but it stayed put offshore throughout the sunset. It blocked the horizon, but I still got a couple of good photos.
