|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Sunset colors are typically more brilliant than sunrise colors, because the evening air contains generally more particles and aerosols and clouds than morning air. Cloud droplets are much larger than the wavelength of light; so they scatter all colors equally by Mie scattering, which makes them appear white when illuminated by white sunlight during the daytime. The clouds glow orange and red due to Mie scattering during sunsets and sunrises, because they are illuminated with the orange and red light that remains after multiple prior Rayleigh scattering events of the light from the setting/rising sun.|

How nice to see a photo from you. It has been a long time. I hope you're doing fine and still enjoying this great hobby.
This is a wonderful sunset where you've used the jetty nicely to introduce the eye into the composition. The many layers of clouds and the different colors created a wonderful view.
