Captiva Island Sunset
It is a lot easier to get up early enough for a west coast sunset than those eastern ones. Here the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico as seen from Captiva Island, Florida. This composition is an easy one. Level the camera with the sun about 1/3 of the way into the frame and allow horizontal rows of color to run through the frame - starting with the dark sand as the base.
