The sky colours are more intense during civil twilight* than they are after sunrise, as shown in the above photo taken from Fernwood Pier.
There’s a beam of light in the sky and reflected in the water; apparently this is called a sun pillar. And to the right, an aging condensation trail from a high flying jet.

In the foreground is the last portion of a very long driveway to a home perched above its 160 acres. Roughly one-quarter of the ocean view is shown in this image. The home gets direct light, from 360 degrees. The nearest neighbour appears to be at a similar elevation, perhaps 5 km away as the crow flies (actually the neighbours have a helicopter, so perhaps more accurately—as the helicopter flies).
Here during a hike along the Wild Pacific Trail, I stopped to watch the swells play through the shoreline rocks. Once again, time well spent!
