After sunset/Sky-Watch Friday


I was meeting friends for dinner on Sunday and I tried to get to the bay walk earlier to catch the sunset.  Unfortunately, I made a wrong turn somewhere and got here a few minutes after sunset.   How did it get so late so soon?

I like the composition of the first image a lot, it feels like a vacation, especially with all the palm trees.

Wonderful photos and a great quote by John Muir.

I know that a minute is always 60 seconds long, but I swear that time speeds up during sunrise and sunset! You still managed to capture a tremendous amount of beauty in your photos, late or not (and I think that most if not all things happen with perfect timing anyway, even if we can't see that). :-)

I love the strings and dots of little lights below the sky, they add a touch of magic!

And I couldn't agree more with Mr. Muir - an eloquent and important reminder that's long been a favorite Muir quote of mine (and he had so many great ones!)
