Aren't the sunsets wonderful this time of year?
Sorry if I'm overdoing it, especially after sharing the moonless super moon photo from Monhegan. It’s difficult for me to resist the night sky's lighting up.
Autumn sunsets seem to be more frequently colorful — or maybe it’s just that I have more time to enjoy them. The fall sun angles and locations really are quite wonderful.
This week's photo was recorded during an impromptu family get together at Boothbay Harbor Inn. Our group was all home for a few days and we decided to descend upon dear friend Kevin Kiley (aka Unka) for one of his evening piano “gigs.”
Kevin has been part of our family since before children. When our girls were born he was ever present and deeply appreciated — truly a special part of our lives for a long time.
During the visit with “Unka” we were treated by another glorious light show from one of the Harbor's premier vantage points. Kevin has recorded a gazillion sunsets (viewed on his Facebook page) over the years.
Things seems to configure just perfectly as the view across the water warms up.
It’s like a motion picture at sunset — the western side of the Harbor drops into shadow and night light reflections float across the bay. People along the waterfront stop what they are doing and line up at the water's edge with all their photo instruments.
Our light shows continue. So go for an evening walk around the Harbor and take advantage of the free natural video. Shows generally start between 6:30 and 7 p.m., give or take.
