Sunset at Cedar Beach

By Peterpools
Living on Long Island, beaches are plentiful and mountain scenery is non existent. Today was a very warm and unusual day and my brother and I headed down to the beach. The sun sets over the marina on Mt Sinai Harbor and rises on the other side of the beach, which is Long Island Sound. Sinking into the wet sand, I was riding with Lady Luck, as the only clouds from horizon to horizon,parked themselves right in front of the setting sun. Sometimes you just get lucky. A Cokinsplit ND4 ND filter was used to help hold back the sky a bit.
