Mantanzas Sunset

This is a sunset image taken over the Mantanzas River near the inlet to the Atlantic Ocean. The area is part of the Fort Mantanzas National Monument.


Fort Mantanzas National Monument consists of a Spanish fort built in 1740 of coquina rock, and about 100 acres of saltwater marsh and surrounding islands on the Mantazas River. It was built to protect the southern end of the Mantanzas River where it enters the Atlantic Ocean at Mantanzas Inlet.


The one and only sunset we shot while in St. Augustine recently. We were pleasantly surprised the way the sky came alive because it didn't look like it was going to do anything initially. Finding a place to shoot it was a bit of a challenge in the area.
