19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset on the Beach

Natural process of Earth's rotation on it axis is captured above shimmering and shadowed waves at the beach. I could not bring myself to leave the beach until the sun had completely set on our first day of family beach vacation. I just sat and watched the sun dip lower and lower in the sky as my daughter played in the sand and my husband began to pick up beach umbrellas and such.
