Dusk is a very special moment to me, maybe even more so than the sunset. The colors are just amazing. When taking photos at dusk, for my taste the colors generally come out best around 30 minutes after sunset. The sky is turning an amazing blue, and lighting of man-made structures comes out nicely balanced. The photo above shows the gazebo on the Mansa beach near the harbor of Punta del Este, while the last remnants of sunlight turn the clouds in a nice pinkish purple. Below you can see the sky blend in with the Rio de la Plata and the lighthouse of Punta del Este in the front.

The photo below of the skyline of Punta del Este just is taken a bit earlier. The sun has not gone that long yet, so orange and yellow can still be seen.
