As the sun continued to set, the clouds became more and more interesting. In the color version, you can see bright yellows and some oranges. Although the black and white version doesn't show that, you can still see the sunlight pouring through the clouds in the middle left side of the picture. I wanted to turn the picture black and white to really illustrate the silhouettes. I positioned myself between the sun and my brother and sister and captured them as they were running from the waves. I also was lucky enough to take the picture when they were in the highlight of the clouds, which made their silhouettes sound out even more.

Sunset Walks

After landing the drone, I took some sunset pictures with my main camera. This first picture is one that I took as I was walking along the beach. There were also some other people walking, and I wanted to capture them and the surrounding environment. I took a few steps closer to the water, partly getting my feet wet, and moved my camera closer to the surface of the water, then took the picture. The people are barely out of a silhouette, the sky is colorful, and the waves create a soft blue tone to the image.

As I flew my drone over the water, I noticed some manta rays swimming. At first, it was just one, then another, a third, then this large squadron (yes, a group of manta rays is called a squadron, I Googled it). I happened to be at the right place and the right time because as I flew my drone over the group, some paddle boarders were right over them. I changed the camera angle such that it faced directly downward and snapped the picture. The dark spots of the rays below the light green water, below the bright colors of the paddleboards.
