Archive photo of the day: Sunset Silhouette

This is one of my favorite photos of all time, and I can't believe I've never featured it on this blog before now! I took the picture in Oceanside, Oregon during a vacation over Spring Break in 2006, as David and Daniel waded in the water at sunset. I love the composition, with the boys center-frame but the horizon, ripples, and haystack at 2/3 positions. The near-complete silhouette, with the hint of a shadow leading toward the camera, makes the two boys iconic rather than specific. Taken all together, it makes a fantastic desktop wallpaper for my computer, and it's an image that brings back good memories of a great vacation.
