The western coast of Aruba is sheltered from the strong winds and waves that batter the north coast of the island. The western coast is so sheltered in fact, that there are literally no waves at all. An occasional ebb and flow of the water's surface is present from time to time, but the ocean could easily be mistaken for a giant swimming pool. My wife and I were relaxing on the beach and when sunset approached, I grabbed my camera and decided to take a few photos as she read a book. Just as the sun touched the horizon, I saw a man walk into the ocean, and I grabbed the following image. He dove just as I released the shutter, and captured this magnificent image of a tropical sunset. This image is one of my largest, and has been successfully printed at 30"x90" by special order.
