Honeymoon Island

Sometimes it's fun doing things out of character.

Beginning in classes again has forced me to pull out old pictures. This one I took of a sunset at Honeymoon Island, Florida, has always intrigued me. I'll admit to generally being anti sunrise and sunset paintings, as the believability factor is low for me. In fact, I'll see a cloud formation or sky color, love it, and then think it could not be believable when painted. Call it my Pessimistic Artistic License.

So, my goal here is less being believable, although the sky was just this way; I merely wanted to step out of bounds. Alas, there is no green.
