sunset boulevard


I promised some time back that I would post no new sunset photographs.. After all, I will be at the beach house for only two more weeks. There are a lot of objects to photograph other than refracted light on the sea.


This sunset on Wednesday evening changed my mind. It looks like a peacock in the sky.


I have never seen clouds with that type of texture isolated as a sunset canvas. Click on the photograph and see them in detail.


It was magnificent enough that locals and tourists alike stopped on the beach to watch it develop.


I would not be meeting my blog duty if I let it pass uncommented.

All I can say is Psalms 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork .

Only 2 more weeks in that house...and you left Salem 8 months ago. Wow. It's hard to believe. How would you say retirement is going for you??

It is an awesome sight. This beautiful sky belongs to all of us, although you are the lucky one to have been there to capture the awesome beauty. How come we don't get skies like that over here? Beautiful and thank you.

Al -- Truly God's canvas.

Jackie -- I did indeed. The sunset has been the talk of the village this week.

Felipe -- And I almost missed it. I was walking to a dinner party and decided to stop. Glad I did.

Leah -- A photograph too good not to share.

Mexican Trailrunner -- Stop by. But I will have my camera tied to my wrist. Where it goes, I go.

Babs -- I hope you have as many.

Crynthia and Mike -- Retirement is great. The only question is where I should be spending it.

Charles -- I should do the same.

Leslie -- And another desktop vote.

Gloria -- The sunsets here are unique. There is a yellow tint every night that I have seen nowhere else.
