A half hour or so before when the sky was dull and flat, I took some shots of Ricia standing by the cliff side overlooking this bay. There was a cormorant floating around near the shore. Now I spotted it still in the same general spot with the sunset colors far more vibrant this time. A few moments later I saw it get up and flap its' wings I knew it was about to take off, and I waited for it to pick up speed, and as it broke the surface I started snapping my shutter.
