Sunset behind gnarled tree at Long Key State Park in the Florida Keys.

Long Key is part of the middle/southern chain of the Florida Keys exactly 67.5 miles North of Key West. They have a fabulous campground.

I tried ajusting the colors on a duplicate image but was not happy with the results even with slight changes.

I love the golden light, the silhouetted tree is very effective and balances the composition well.
Cheers Steve

Thank you Mike and Steve for your comments. I too love the deep amber colors. I stood among sand fleas and ants for a long while just waiting for the sun to position itself to my liking.
