I expect this will not please the photographic purists on TE but this is what happens when you get bored with "straight" photos of constantly beautiful sunsets - you start experimenting with composition, sharpness, exposure...
The "second sun" is created by the reflection in wet sand.

Obrazow takich jak w WS spotyka sie setki, tysiace. Swiat dazy ku wiekszym rozdzielczosciom, ostrosciom- zdjecia musza byc perfekcyjne... ale fotografia wywodzi sie w prostej linii z malarstwa a tam wazne sa barwne plamy, harmonijne linie. To Ty wybierasz te czastki ktore chcesz pokazac i zrobilas to niestandardowo. To co pokazalas bardziej oddaje klimat miejsca i chwili niz najbardziej perfekcyjny technicznie obraz. Gratuluje i... podazaj ta droga (nawet ja usmiechnietych buziek bedzie tu mniej niz pod innymi zdjeciami)

Hi dear Kasia
Very impressive and also dramatic image at all.
I am surprised that wet sand makes reflection.
Great synmetry and unusual reflection image at all.
Thanks and all the best! Takero from Tokyo

according to your words, I am not a photographic purist! I like the creativity of the shot, unsharp to have a dreamy effect, and its reflection in a warm atm¨osphere.
Congratulations to try not to have common pictures, to test new ideas, to take thisn site as a photographic one and not only a geographic one.
My best regards

being a physicist, I feel it's astounding that the reflection of the sun on wet sand has exactly the shape of the sun. Over water, you will normally see the "sword of the sun" reaching towards you, a more or less lengthened shape. You must have found a very favourable situation. I assume that in most cases, this would not work so well.

What I like with...., no I won't repeat my last comment, but this picture perfectly fits my impressions of your ever-changing style, where experiments and "wild" ideas are so much more important than pleasing the postcard-lovers. This is a very interesting effect and definitely off the beaten TE track.

I really like it, fantastic experiment! It looks like a modern painting and the warm colours are just wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
