Sunny day at the harbour!

A stretch of green grass is in the foreground, and it meets a paved path which cuts across the photo horizontally slightly below center. There are two people who are silhouettes walking on the path and a black dog running ahead of them. Past the path in the background is the ocean, and the sun is setting to the right. Above the setting sun the clouds are swirling and a mix of blues, purples, and greys.
