While driving from Tampa to Miami Florida, I made a detour to North Beach at Fort Desoto Park on the Gulf of Mexico in hopes of capturing a dramatic sunset over the Gulf. I hiked out to a remote spot and set up for what I thought would be an incredible sunset over the water shot. After waiting for 1-1/2hrs in the heat, the sun began to set and I quickly realized nothing dramatic was going to happen. A weird haze on the horizon & a lack of clouds was making the moment uninspiring. In frustration, I shot a few pictures and began to pack up. As I turned around, this scene is what I discovered.
