Too late she cried!



I have the undeserved reputation for always being late.. don't believe it it's just not true! I don't do sunsets very often but for no particular reason yesterday evening I had a fancy to catch the sun going down from atop the lighthouse at Hillarys Marina. Here's the thing, I live literally five minutes from the marina, I knew sunset was at 5.20 and yet there I was tearing up the pier towards the lighthouse like a madwoman yelling waaaaait! Of course it didn't.. I was three minutes late from the time the sun hit the horizon until it disappeared, pffft! Not bad sky colours though and because I followed the photographers handbook rule #look up, I did catch an unexpected surprise.. but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what it was :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  3. What a gorgeous sunset!

    I have a friend who is ALWAYS late. No matter what time she says she'll be here, it's always 15-30 minutes later. But to be fair, if I had her schedule, I probably wouldn't even remember where I was supposed to be. And I hate schedules of any kind, so I can't ever be upset with anyone who's not on time.

  4. Sunsets are overvalued, your after-the-fact pictures are great!

  5. It's all good and it's all beautiful. And I'm always amazed at how quickly the sun slides down beneath the horizon once it gets on a roll!

    By the way, I can hear your dinosaur roar here in Florida!

  10. You cracked me up with this post. I've seen the sunset over the Pacific Ocean many times but a sunset over the Indian Ocean I've only seen in pictures so any shot you post is gorgeous to me. I can't wait to see the surprise.

  13. That is a very dramatic sunset with great color. Your sunset is at 5:20 pm? Wow, ours is now at about 9:30 pm. We are in the northern part of the U.S. and just over 100 miles from the time zone line.

  30. sometimes the best colors are after the sun goes down anyway.

  31. Ooooh, these are nice! I have often found that it is not the actual sunSET (i.e., the instant when the sun disappears below the horizon) that is most interesting, but the 15 - 30 minutes afterward when the sun below the horizon lights up the clouds. Go give that a try.
