As I was taking a long exposure watching the beautiful sunset out of the corner of my eye I saw this little girl running towards me. For a second I thought she was going to knock over my camera, fortunately nothing happened, she simply wanted to play in the sand. I took one more click to get her in the picture, lucky for me I did just that.
I love the contrast of her pink dress. Sometimes things like this happen and you must capitalize on it.
If there is a sunset to catch in Florida it must be in Key West. You can see some of the most insane sunsets from here, this is Mallory Square and I must warn you it gets completely packed so get there a bit early. This place is cool because you have a direct view of the sunset. There are lots of boats going by so you can get some good shots. Make sure you have a zoom so you can compress the sun. I shot this with a 70-200 but if you have a 300 or bigger, its even better.
There are lots of artists there and some great live music, after the sunset you can catch a drink at the famous Duval Street.

Here is another beautiful sunset in Key West Florida. I was on my way in to the city and the sun was setting fast I had to pull over and swap lenses fast. I threw on my 70-200mm lens so I could compress the sun. (make it a bit bigger)
It was beautiful being out there to experience this amazing sunset. I can’t wait until the next one.
After a short couple weeks of traveling, its always nice to come home to the amazing Florida weather and Florida Sunsets. It never disappoints waking up to a sunrise or going to sleep after a sunset like this one.
I shot this sunset a few months ago at the Naples pier in Naples Florida. Every day at sunset people line up to watch the sun set over the Gulf, its an incredible site to see. Sometimes its cloudy, sometimes its plain, but one thing is for sure, it never fails to impress.
