    Right In My Own Backyard

    So my sister and I used to be obsessed with getting a good sunset or sunrise shot when we went on caribbean cruises.  They always posted the times for both on the little daily agendas you got each night.  We would set alarms, and all that, and whenever we would choose...

    This Evening ...

    I took these photos this evening when I was out walking my dog.  The evening air was cool and there were a lot of small moths and midges buzzing around.  The grass has grown to around 8 inches in height since it had its recent cut.  The fields were recently...

    I was lucky enough to live on the edge of a lake for 18 months, in the West of Ireland. The living room had a huge picture window and the view was spectacular.  At the bottom of the garden was a slip down to the edge of the water and there were often small fishing boats...

    Gorgeous Sunsets

    I don't want to brag, but I live in a remote area of the country and I work at all times of day and night and I often see some of the most beautiful sunsets. I also get to see many sunrises that are just a beautiful. I sometimes stop what I am doing and marvel at the beauty.

    Thing about sunsets is

    that they don't even look real. They look to me like beautiful paintings across the sky. Probably because my grandmother was a painter and she could recapture the beauty of a perfect sunset on canvas. now whenever I see a beautiful sunset I see my grandmother's paintings and...

    The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen was in Hawaii as it set behind the beautiful ocean of purple.  It was magnificent and I hope to see another there soon.

    Sunsets Spectacular

    I've seen Sunsets from the east and the west coasts. I've seen them from the Atlantic ocean and the Pacific. I've seen them from Hawaii and most Carib islands. I've seen them from the gulf of Mex and from the Panama Canal. The ONE thing I've never seen is the Green Flash. People...

    Cayucos & Mt. Shasta City In California.

    I've been blessed to live in both of these towns. Cayucos is still a sleepy little beach town, exactly  half way between LA and San Francisco on Highway 1.  I worked for a restaurant owner who built a bar addition on top of his restaurant called "Schooner's Wharf". ...

    Thoughts On Witnessing a Sunset ...

    I stood outside and watched the sun go down over the mountains in the western sky. It was cool, end of the summer, just a little heat left in the evening sun.  Blackberries were ripening and would be ready soon for September jam making. Smoke rose and billowed softly...
