Here's a view westward on the long dock extending out behind the house into the Intracoastal Waterway. The sunsets are always spectacular here because the cloud formations caused by the coastline are very dramatic. I could look at these clouds day and night. This exposure was taken well after dark, so the challenge here was to make sure the gazebo was in focus and to keep mosquitoes off of me without causing the camera to bounce around. I was fairly successful, but I did collect a few bites in the process.

Beautiful shot. Takes me back a few years to celebration of my parents 50th anniversary on Topsail Island.

How surreal! Well worth the mosquito bites. It looks almost 3d generated. One of the best landscapes I've ever seen, Mike.
