If sunset fails you, turn around

This photo was taken on a beach in Cancun a couple months back, shortly after sunset. Unfortunately, it was one of those days with too many clouds on the horizon and the sun was not visible around the time it was supposed to set and the great sunset we were hoping for did not happen. So, we went to walk along the beach and a while after sunset the sky facing away from the direction the sun set in began to light up a brilliant orange color. With the large amount of clouds on the horizon, the water off in the distance was quite dark, giving the scene a rather dramatic look.
