This colorful sunset landscape photograph is at Rock Harbor Beach near Orleans, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Rock Harbor is becoming the place to view the beautiful Cape Cod sunsets, similar to Mallory Square in Key West. Entertainment is provided by local muscians, crowds gather and enjoy the music while the sun gently sets across the ocean. In this image, the trees planted as channel markers are silhouetted against the salmon colored sky. A little digital editing enhanced the color of the water.
In addition to wonderful sunsets (and sunrises), Rock Harbor presents so many other unique photographic opportunities. With all of the grass and the solitary trees growing out of the water as channel markers, it's unlike any other beach I've seen on the Cape. Orleans, Massachusetts, is also home to the Coast Guard Rescue Ship, CG36500, which performed the heroic rescue of the crew of the Pendleton, recreated in the recent movie The Finest Hours. The CG36500 is docked at Rock Harbor
