A settings sun casts a warm light on the already inviting beach at Polihale State Park in Kauai, HI.
Note that the road into this state park is very rough. And your rental car company may not be interested in coming back here to get you should you break down.
As usual when shooting at the ocean, I spent a lot of time waiting for just the right wave action for my photos. Here I had washed-smooth beach with a strong white foam-edged wave accented by the low sun angle shadow.
I placed the waterline about 1/3 of the way down into the frame. The rule of thirds often works well for water-against sky horizons.
