Never Shoot into the Sun!

Never Shoot into the Sun!

You know the rule,
never shoot into the sun!
Oh well,
Here you go.

Hey team,
Being super pressed for time due to new work commitments,
I will continue to visit and vote,
However, my comments on your images will be minimal.
I do, very much admire your photographic efforts and artistic presentations.
But for the next while my comments will be a bit light,
although I will visit your work regularly and will indicate that I voted etc..
Hope that is okay.

It's hard to get a sunset shot without breaking that rule. This turned out gorgeous. Love the crowded harbor in the low light and the beautiful colors in the sky. And of course your life takes precedent over Pbase. V.
