Miami’s city skyline, perfectly reflected in the calm waters of Biscayne Bay.

I’ve probably tried 50 times to catch this scene on a calm day like this since… this glassy-calm is, it turns out, quite rare, particularly at sunset, when this was shot.

This is taken from the Rickenbacker Causeway along a natural coral-rock shore; elsewhere along the causeway, sand has been trucked in to create beaches.
