Shimmering Sea - Sunset from the Cliffs, Point Loma, San Diego

This is one of my favorite moments at sunset along the coast: when you get a glimmer on the ocean as the sun reaches the horizon. This was a long exposure (5 seconds at f/22), which gives the water a dreamy feel.

My Purple Afterglow photo was taken a bit later from the same location.
