Ormond By The Sea Florida Late Afternoon Beach Photo

Late Afternoon Sun Washes Against Waves in Ormond By The Sea Florida

The late afternoon sun kissed the breaking waves against a brilliant blue sky on a beautiful day. The location is north of Ormond Beach Florida in the small seaside community of Ormond By The Sea. The photo was taken near the walk-over from Bicentennial Park a few miles north of Granada Blvd on A1A.

Last night I went out to the beach to catch the sunset and make images. The sunset was spectacular and can be seen in the post Dramatic Sunset in Ormond Beach Florida – Colors and Jet Trails.

This image was taken about 40 minutes before sunset looking to the south.

This section of the beach is usually very quiet. There is no driving here. Driving starts at Granada Blvd and goes south. A lot of people park across the street in Bicentennial Park and watch the ocean. There were six cars there last night at sunset.

I used the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 camera. This camera is sealed and weatherproof. I feel comfortable taking it on to the beach without concern for damage due the sand and sea mist. I had my Olypus E-520 with me in the bag, but it was sealed in a plastic bag against the elements. I used it later across the street to get the sunset photos.

Camera Info: Olympus Stylus Tough 6000, 1/200 sec., f/5, ISO 50, 5mm.
