To get the sunset shot I waded out into the ocean with my camera on a tripod. I set the tripod legs into the sand below the water's surface and used a 400mm zoom lens to compress the effect of the kayaker, the White Rock Pier, and the mountain in the background. The full size image is so clear that the trail hikers take up the mountain in the snow is clearly visible.
Photo shot with a Nikon D850 using a 200-400mm VR2 lens.
Aperture f8, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/125 second using a wired shutter release.
