This was the view of the Atlantic Ocean at twilight from the Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada - one of the Florida Keys. The vision was total serenity and tranquility as there didn't seem to be a dividing line between where ocean met sky. When I look at this picture i'm instantly transported back to that magical moment and place. Ahhhhhhh what a relaxing view. This photo was shot with a Nikon D50 (my first digital SLR) with an extremely wide angle Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens (the only non-Nikon glass I own).

This photo has just made it to the final round of the Los Angeles Times Photo Contest - I'll know by the end of September if it's won anything.
