Gazing into the setting sun

The story behind the image

We visited the Table Mountain in Cape Town in the late afternoon, and we had many beautiful views across Cape Town and Camps Bay. The sun was setting quickly, and from the upper Cableway station, Petra gazed at the Pacific Ocean and the sun set.

I grabbed my Zoom Lens and captured this image. I love the restricted color set, the lens flare, the very gentle waves hat can be seen in the lower half of the image. And, of course, the silhouette of Petra with her sunglasses up in her hair.
