Cape Cod Compromise - Cape Cod National Seashore, Mass. - USA
Cape Cod national seashore is known for it's sand dunes. I spent much of the day exploring these dunes, and find them to be quite fascinating. So much so, that I had a hard time pulling myself away in time to get to a good spot for sunset.
As the sun began setting I scurried to try and find a trail that would allow me to get to the beach and have an ocean view. I was quickly walking along this trail, as the color in the sky peaked with this glorious showing. I realized in that moment that I wasn't going to make it in time for the ocean view. So I relaxed, and I compromised with what was in front of me. A wonderful reminder to appreciate the beauty that is always right in front us, right now. I chose to use these colorful bushes, wildflower field, and signature cape cod sandy trail as the foreground against the backdrop of this magnificent sky.
Per usual, this was taken in the moment, by hand. It's not a long exposure as it may seem. The amazing spread of colors across the sky was exactly as seen by the eye.
