Merry Christmas everyone! Today we continue with the top 10 of 2018 countdown and this image of an incredible sunset sky over Fort Beach. I remember that I was at Crocker Park on the night of July 3rd enjoying music with friends when these clouds passed overhead and the sun dipped lower in the sky. It seemed as though the sunset might offer great opportunities so I excused myself and headed down to Front Street.

I lucked out with the location of this monstrous cloud and was able to use the water of Fort Beach to reflect the brilliant sunset colors that lit up the sky well after the sun actually set.  For the combination of brilliant light, a big sky and the memories of a fun evening, this image is my fourth favorite of 2018.
