This is an image that when I was in the moment there taking it, I actually said to myself "these colours look Photoshopped". Mother Nature is an amazing artist and this 15-minute stretch at Cavendish Beach in Prince Edward Island was one the best canvases I've seen.

About 10 minutes before this was taken a giant storm system passed through, absolutely drenching the area. As I drove down to the beach I could see car after car of people leaving the beach - no doubt their plans ruined. But it paid off: the sky broke just as the sun was hitting the horizon and I was treated to one of my most memorable experiences with light.

ISO 100, F/13, 3.2-second exposure. Canon f/4 17-40MM lens @ 32MM.
