The story behind the image

We ha dexpected a beautiful sunset. The sky was clear, the wind was blowing, and not a single cloud could be seen anywhere. We had booked a table for dinner at The Tug, a very good restaurant with local specialities, located directly at Swakop’s main beach.

Fortunately, we were a ahead of time and captured several photos of the beach and the historic Jetty Bridge (aka ‘Jetty Pier’) that reaches out into the Atlantic Ocean. When awesome light meets an awesome location, what do you get? Awesome photos!

Seriously, I love this shot.
