After taking my new 24mm pancake lens out last night to the south end of Siesta Beach, I walked away without much to write home about; there wasn’t a ton of proper subjects at that section, and we had a completely cloudless sky.
As we walked behind a section of sea grasses on our way back to the parking lot, I turned towards the water and found this wonderfully colored and contrasted scene. It always seems that when you think there’s nothing worth shooting, a situation like this presents itself.

To me, this is the perfect description of simplicity; a calm sea underneath a setting sun and fiery sky. One clean line, the horizon, separating the two.
