Gulls in Sun Under Clouds

Sometimes the sun, as it sets, finds the crack between the cloud cover and the horizon (should there be one) and has one last shine. There is nothing that matches that particular light. This late afternoon in question I was shooting winter gulls on a little beach in Kennebunk when it happened, and the way the gulls lined the tide line standing on their own reflections in the wet sand, and the curve of the land out to see, and the lone house…and that subtle blush of sunset along the horizon.

Sony DSC H50 40mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom (but not much), added Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint slightly right. Sharpen Landscape preset.
