Seal Cove Sunset

Always have to return to Seal Cove on the Western side of Mt. Desert Island at around 6 pm this time of year to capture the spectacular sunsets.  Sometimes the palette is magenta, sometimes red and yellow, sometimes more purple -- you never know what you'll get.  Probably requires a meteorologist to explain why.  Easy photography, really.  Just requires a tripod and it helps to lock the shutter so you get fine detail on the tree outline on the island.  Usually get very still water in the cove, so the reflections off the surface are a bonus.
