Cape Fear Sunset

We were in Wilmington for two reasons last September. Our annual couples trip to the beach which also coincided with parents weekend at my daughter’s college. My husband, daughter and I were strolling along the riverwalk watching the sunset when I stopped to take this picture. The sun’s warm reflection, the silhouette of the flying bird and the abstract texture of the water made this shot interesting.

Shot with my 24–105 lens. For more camera information or to purchase, click on the photo.
