The task of choosing a winner was not an easy one, but we kept coming back to this gem snapped by Stephanie from South Florida. And so, without further ado, we’ll let our guest take the stage…

Sunset Key, Key West


I captured this stunning sunset on a Friday night in June using my iPhone (no filters). My fiance and I had taken a boat from Key West to the private island of Sunset Key, where we dined at Latitudes, a restaurant at the luxurious Westin Resort. We arrived at 6:45 p.m. and were lucky to be seated at a table on the patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. We sipped Prosecco as we indulged in a tasting of roasted beets with goat cheese pillows and pistachio crumbs, followed by pan roasted wild caught salmon with bacon and toasted kale and sesame wasabi crusted black grouper with udon noodles, baby spinach and lime dashi broth. Shortly before 8 p.m., the sun started to set, and the sky turned glorious shades of red, orange and yellow. I took this photo just as a sunset cruise party boat sailed by. In just a few minutes, the sun disappeared into the horizon. We poured another glass of Prosecco and toasted a breathtaking Key West sunset.
