CT Coast Sunset


I was driving home from the grocery store on the 2nd and happened to glance toward the sunset. Must tell you, the day had been nice but nothing spectacular. I nearly wrecked the car when I caught a glimpse of the now gorgeous sunset sky!
So I had to chase that sunset out onto our local Saugatuck Shores. As I got to the parking lot, two old salts who had been clamming yelled: "Shoulda been here 3 minutes ago - that sunset was the most spectacular we've ever seen, and we've seen a lot of 'em!" That's me...always a day late and a dollar short. (sigh)
And though the above photo isn't as wonderful as it could have been 3 minutes earlier, I still think it's kinda sorta beautiful!

  4. It certainly is "still beautiful". The colors are stunning and the refection in the water, well, it's all great.

  8. Still a very impressive sky! Being an avid sunrise watcher I understand the difference 3 minutes make, in fact I talk about it in my sky post today!

  11. The old salts have less time left to see one so spectacular - so good for them. You'll have many more beauties to experience.. and this one sure ranks way up there.

  16. I can't even imagine what it would have been that was better than this. The Old Salts were probably pulling your chain.
