Evening Glow



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This picture was taken in December, 2010, in Sunset Beach, North Carolina. I was intrigued by the reflection of the sky in the water of the marshes bordering the Intracoastal Waterway and captured this scene.

I enlarged this one to get a better look. I thought the marsh was just part of the cloud formation, but wow. That is water with a sky reflection from a distance, how cool!!!

Were you and Betsy sitting by the window and looking outside. Wonderful sight, and great that you can appreciate God's beauty.

Re: Rocks , this is what the maoris say, the rocks do get heated up through the summer and retain the heat,. A lot of them are half buried.

Another thing about these rocks, they make great homes for the rats and mice. (not so nice) so it is not shameful to tell people you have rats. It is all over the place in Auckland. They crawl inside the crevices and holes. When it is very cold, they come inside your house.

I feel giddy as a schoolgirl at the sight of a Carolina beach. Thanks for lifting the night from the single digits, George!

Lynda said...

I agree it's a gorgeous sunset and silhouette. Do you have to do something special to get the silhouette or just have the right low evening light?

LV said...

You did another super job capturing more of nature at its best.
