Awesome Washington State Sunset

Winter Sunset, Lopez Island, Washington, USA. The winter sun sets behind San Juan Island, lighting up heavy cloud cover from underneath. I shot the photo January 30, 2015, with a Canon PowerShot S2 IS. This image is straight from the camera without any retouching or cropping.

We see many stunning sunsets in the San Juan Islands. Some attribute this to the fact that the sun sets behind the frequently rainy west shore of Vancouver Island, BC. They get the rain; we get the refraction.
