Sky Watch Friday #16: Sinking Fast


"Sinking Fast"
Atlantic Beach, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sky Watch Friday

Can scenes like this one ever get old? I think not. I could watch this every night and still be amazed by it.

Gorgeous shot, and best of all it's at the beach.

I long for warm weather and lazy afternoons at the beach.

That looks like one of those places that you can always catch a sunset and never be bored that one will be like the next.

SandyCarlson said...

Oooh....Roll on April, when I can see NC for myself again. I imagine that yellow thing balancing on the pier is the sun and it gives off heat? If that is so, then this girl lives in hope of one day encountering it.

I don't think I'd ever tire of watching sunsets like this one..it's very vivid and dramatic..

Catherine said...

I can't watch it every night un fortunately, that's exactly the reason why I come here to watch it.
I just miss the sound of waves and it would be a paradise.

Stunning sunset shot across that pier! Such a glorious sweep of rich color against the silhouettes. The beach is my favorite place to be. Your word "embiggen" instead of enlarge made me smile!
