Sunrise, Sunset

Over Atlantic Surf

This scene features a sunset across the Atlantic, as viewed from North Carolina. Yes, that's right, sunset. How on earth...? Actually, such a shot is perfectly reasonable, when considering that this part of the coast lies WNW-ESE, and the late winter sun sets at a slightly offshore angle to the beach. After sunset, I was treated to another peculiar scene more common to California: wildfire smoke from inland, also viewed across ocean waters.
