On the shores of Patricia Bay, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. About a mile or so from my house and a favourite spot for this sort of image. Sometimes the afterglow seems to give a more peaceful and calm feeling than a fiery and dramatic sunset, and I’ve gathered a series of such captures over the past few years.
