Sunset is my favorite time of the day on the beach. The sun drops from the clouds and the busy day prepares for a peaceful and quiet night of rest. The moon decides to take over from the sun and the sun quietly concedes to the moon. The beach walkers come out to walk the beach because it is cooler and more comfortable. That is when I take pictures to try to capture that relaxing ambiance.
