Rings Around the Sun

We were looking forward to a predictably beautiful sunset created by the magical setting of the Fernandina Beach Marina. As the cloud bank crept above the horizon, I became resigned to a gentle orange glow in the sky, but nothing more remarkable. Then a splinter break in the clouds opened and created a Saturn-like pattern in front of the descending sun. How many times do photographers whisper to themselves - "YES" - grateful that their patience was rewarded?

  1. While focusing ot he sun and its impact on the boats, you omitted any mention the incredible translucence of the water. You made this a very special image.
