One of my favorite things about photographing at this Bandon, OR beach in the evening was watching the transformation of colors as each minute went by. I plopped myself behind this one rock because served as a really nice foreground element and had a convenient tide pool forming around it. It’s always nice when peace of mind is in harmony with peace in front of the camera.

In terms of processing
I stylized in Lightroom 4.3 and went heavy with contrast and vignette. I intentionally didn’t want to retain too much tone beyond the orange haze of the sunset. I let most of the color fall into that cool blue realm as I felt it further added to the sense of solitude and stillness.
