The golden hour captured perfectly for us. What a luscious feel and such beuatiful tones. Did you do much PP on this or did you just nail the shot straight out of the cam. Either way I love it.

Beautiful tcook but I can't see where the reflection is comming from. The skyline looks to dark to produce that much reflection on the wet sand. Or am I missing something?

Thanks for looking and commenting Rafael and Don.
Rafael, I always process a shot some but I do not tweak the colors a lot. The shot is pretty much what the camera saw although probably a little darker and brighter then what the eye would see.
Don, what you are weeing is the ocean and not the skyline. I shot it that way to get the bright reflection on the sand and darken the water. Here is a shot of the same sunset but from a bluff above the ocean rather then on the beach like the other shot. The sunset that night did not have any pretty cloud formations so I tried some different shots like this one and the first one to get some interesting shots.

Well, that first shot is just plain gorgeous. I wish I had sunsets like that.

That's a good idea tcook. I would not have thought of doing that.
