14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Perfect Sunset on the Atlantic Ocean

Upon Europe's tallest sand dune, Pyla-Sur-Mer, you are sure to catch one of most breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean right at sunset. The long walk up through pillowy sand is well worth it! After running down toward the dune to feel the fresh ocean water, I found a small sailboat that was riding solo embracing the vast ocean. It was complete serenity.
