A Blazing Sunset That Cannot Be Captured

This was such a sight to behold in person I just had to grab the camera and try to freeze it forever. The orange emblazoned sky against the gray cast. The building shadows of the day's dying light turning a light chill in the breeze. The nearby ocean and shore looking cold against the Sun's last mighty gasp of the day. A lone distant sail traversing the space between the waning day and the waxing night. Surf sounds churning against the rocky Earth as the light receded to make their presence known only by their echoes. A splendor of mystery once the moon dappled their bodies with glistening cool.
Blazing sunset off the shore.

Our technology mighty it may be simply can't match the marvel of nature's beauty. Best we can do is emulate it to the point of emoting the presence felt. This photo was edited not to be accurate in it's rendering of the true colors, an impossibility at present. It's toned to emphasize the contrasting warm and cool that the scene presented. Shot with a Canon 30D and 200-300mm F5.6 lens.

Let me know in the comments if you've had success capturing the emotion of a sunset in your own photos. Share them please.
