Thanks everyone for all the great votes and comments!

I know people recognized it and yes, it's my favorite bay with all the little skiffs. This is the sister boat of the one that's in the Masters' FS shot. They are right next to each other but the two shots were taken a few days apart.

I've always gone here for the sunrise but the week I took these, I went there at dusk so the sun is actually behind me. The orange and blue colors in the sky, I think, are caused by the Belt of Venus effect. The orange is the light from the sun that has already gone past the horizon and the blue is from the shadow of the earth.

Thanks again everyone. :)

edit to add:
just thought I'd include this outtake. shot 3 days earlier.

Beautiful image and deserving of the blue. By the way, I don't think I've ever seen an eyesore win a ribbon before. New heights of achievement with this one.
