Sunset Cruise

SDP 3-20-16
After a few days of fog photos, we're back to sunsets (as promised).  This was a stunning one at Lovers Key State Park a few weeks ago.  Several miles up the road, the beaches are packed with students and families enjoying Spring Break.  But here?  It's just enough of a hike to scare people away … and, after a short (and beautiful) walk, I was rewarded with a deserted beach.  As I watched the sun expand into a glowing orange ball and sink into the Gulf of Mexico…that silhouetted boat puttered by, almost on cue.   I posted this photo of what the sky looked like that evening when I was hoofing back to the park entrance.  Slowly but surely, the SDP staff is circling back to an array of sunset photos and, yes, more Sunshine Skyway pics are still on tap.  So much to share!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

It always amazes me how speedily the sun sinks as soon as it hits the horizon, 4 minutes I believe, you have no idea how many times I've been juuuuuust half a minute too late :) Stunner of a capture here SRQ!

You can't go wrong when photographing a sunset. The sun is always willing to show.

This is almost too beautiful to believe. In addition to that fabulous sky it's light enough that there's still a touch of blue in the water. Good job!
