 While on a family vacation to South Carolina, I noticed the amazing colors the water and sky had after the sun set. Unfortunately, there were not many shorebirds where we were staying, but a group of sanderlings flew in on this particular evening and I couldn't resist making a few photos.  

Nikon D7100, 200-500mm, iso 2000, f/5.6, 1/800

Great shot, very special, I really like the colors so warm that fade into each other.
A really wonderful backlight.

Gorgeous bands of golden tones that merge and dream in harmony, John! The little sanderling is feasting in a sea of liquid caramel. Beautifully observed and expertly captured. So much to enjoy!

Great use of the available lighting, at the end of the day, a very unique photograph, John.

Lovely effect with the bands of colors and the big pool of reflected color. Nice position for the Sanderling too, with the legs separated- gives a nice silhouette.
