Not living near the west coast means I always jump at the chance to take pictures of the sea in the evening.
So when I arrived in Cornwall this afternoon I headed straight for the coast to take pictures of the sun setting across the Atlantic Ocean.
Exposure in this kind of situation is critical. You have to get the right balance between the brightness of the sun and the darker surrounding seascape.
I mounted the camera on a tripod, used the self timer to trip the shutter and went for a small aperture to keep the entire image in focus.
By using the self timer you prevent accidentally jarring the camera as you initiate the exposure which keeps the image nice and sharp.
Time 09:02pm Shutter 1/250 Aperture F16
