The autunmal equinox marks the first day of autumn or fall in the Northern Hemisphere. It is one of two days every year when the sun illuminates equally in the Northern and Southern hemishperes.
The equioxal sunset from the beach shore last nigh did not disappoint as it was free of clouds and alive with vivid colors.
September sunsets never disappoint.
The rainy season gives us beautiful sunsets or gray skies. Below are beautiful sunsets from the first week of September.
Viewing the sunset in a new spot provides a different perspective.
On a few occasions, I’ve had the pleasure of watching the sunset while sitting dockside at a local marina. And it is absolutely amazing.
The masts of sailboats line the marina across the horizon.
In the sky, different colors blend together while the clouds are accentuated by the remnants of the sunlight.
The storm clouds hid the sunset tonight, but glimpses of the sun hung just above the clouds on the horizon,
The reflections from the sky appeared as bands of rays accross the Gulf of Mexico. Soon the rays disappeared as the summer storms rolled in,
A cold front rolled through the area today bringing spring storms with high winds, heavy rain, and dangerous lightning. Besides the cooler temps, the weather system created a drab cloudy day.
The odds of seeing a sunset on days like today are slim to none.
As the day was ending, the clouds opened up near the horizon.
The opening in the clouds was painted in several shades of orange. The sun looked like a big ball of fire slowly dropping below the horizon.
After the sun disappeared, the orange faded as darkness overtook the sky.
And the day came to an end with a rare glimpse of a beautiful sunset.
Tonight’s sunset colored the sky and water many shades of orange.
Viewing the sunset a few seconds before the sun dropped below the horizon, the golden sky offsets the dark clouds and aqua gulf.
After the sun passes hehind the clouds before it sets, neon orange is painted accross the horizon while the gulf is dyed aqua green.
Another amazing sunset.
The last day of April brought rain showers on an otherwise grey overcast day.
After the rain ended shortly before the sunset, the sun popped out from behind the clouds and produced a little bit of color.
The sunset of four years today as the sun touches the horizon.
The sun’s reflection displays vividly on the edge of the surf while a dotted line is painted in the water towards the beach. All this as a sailboat drifts by at a distance.
Fours years ago, after the sun dropped below the horizon, the bright orange colors and the relections diminish.
Right now it’s an unusual cold day in the subtropical state of Florida on the 25th day of the first month of the year 2022. Below normal temperatures with cloud covered skies are producing rain showers with little chance of sunshine.
While trying to stay warm, wrapped in my warm crocheted blanket, I reviewed my photo archives to bring some sun and warmth into my life.
I discovered these beautiful sunset pictures taken four years ago today. Both images presented some moments of sun and warmth on this cold and dreary day.
Maybe today for you, some sun and warmth will fill a few moments of your day as these pictures have filled mine.
