Sunset over the Basin Arcarchon, Andernos les Bains, France

The quay overlooking the Basin Arcachon in Andernos les Bains in France is a beautiful spot overlooking an ocean bay on the Atlantic coast in France west of Bordeaux. Sunsets all over the globe present a constantly changing tableau, and this photo seemed to capture the majesty of the changing light as the sun descended below the horizon.
