Sunset over Laguna Vista (TX), across the Laguna Madre, from South Padre Island

Just a happenstance shot - we were on the end of a boardwalk into the Laguna Madre, and the atmospherics made for a neat view when I looked through the zoom lens I had on for birds.  My thought had been to get some Pelicans or Terns crossing in front of the setting sun, but the lens revealed the windmills that I hadn't noticed naked eye.

100-400 4.5-5.6 II
f/8, 1/2,500 ISO 800 (Coulda' shoulda' dialed that ISO back, lol)
Eval -1.67

Comments and suggestions welcome
Good light,

Well, windmills have "wings" don't they? ;) Love the atmospheric sun!

With that gorgeous sunset you've managed to make the wind turbines quite attractive, Craig! Lovely mood with this one.
