Although I've never been a sailor, I can imagine sailing off into a red sunset. Fact, the sun doesn't really set, the horizon rises. Good night...

Did you see a green flash as the horizon moved up over the sun?
Good shot!

No, I don't know if this body of water is large enough or the atmospheric conditions weren't just right. The photo was taken from Southern New Jersey looking out over the mouth of the Delaware bay, so it could be just wide enough.
The Green flash is a tricky shot to get since it's not always visible to observers and the green wavelength is so short.
Also, even though the photo was taken in very early November, I had on a fairly heavy jacket but I had left my gloves in the car, which was on the other side of the dunes, and my hands were starting to get really, really cold; it was kind of windy at the time.

My photo was taken only a few miles from Wildwood New Jersey.

I have been very fortunate to catch the green flash several times. The best was in St. Lucia with the pirate ship Black Pearl silhouetted in the frame.

I have, though embedded in another thread I no longer remember. I was new to photography then and not proficient in post processing, (image is SOOC) so the horizon is annoyingly off level, and now that bothers me, lol. I also was only shooting jpegs at the time. I should probably see if I can find the original and level the horizon.

Here it is, taken from a recent Facebook post I made for friends headed back to SL. I am still going to try and locate the original. At the time, I had no idea that to some, catching it was the Holy Grail of images.
