Stunning Sunset

Overall I've been pretty lazy about driving down to the beach every time we have a fantastic sunset. 

For example, here is one I took from my house in early October.  I wanted to get to the beach but I was in my jammies and figured by the time I got down there, it would have faded.

Well, we had another stunning sunset on the 25th and despite being in my jammies, I decided to jump in the car.  I was gambling that no one would be there since it was a Sunday evening.  And luckily I  was right.  I parked on the boat ramp and hopped out to take a few.  I'm glad I did.





I submitted the picture to the Bourne Police Department Facebook page, since they like to feature people's pics and I was so happy that they chose to share mine!  I took this screen cap of it, but when I went back later on, there was almost 1,100 'likes'.  I know I shouldn't measure my life and self esteem by how many Facebook likes I get, but that is the most that any of my photos has ever gotten. It also got shared a bunch of times too.  Any positive exposure I can get for my pics, the better.

    1. Thanks! I get into my jammies as soon as I get home and know that I don't have to go back out again, no matter what time it is. Why be uncomfortable?

  4. Great stuff! I've always liked taking sunset pictures though I rarely do it anymore. I don't really get very spectacular sunsets from my backyard and I never leave at that time of day to go watch the sunset.

    When I was living in TN I used to go up to a mountain overlook to watch the sunset over the panorama of the city view. That was always so relaxing.

    1. Thank you! What a fantastic view it must've been from that mountain top. It's funny but one of my friends always posts sunrise pics and I post the sunset pics. Just tells you what time she & I get up and go to bed. lol I don't think I've ever seen a sunset pic from her come to think of it.
