Seaside Silhouettes as the Sun Sets

Wandering around the island of Cat Ba for an evening, I saw the hazy glow of the sun. Two nights prior the sun had set as a bright pink-red fire ball due to the distant smoke and haze. Hoping to capture that particular color of the sun, I became distracted with lining a boat up with the sun streaked water. This photo with the yellow to blue gradient at the top quickly stole my heart!
