    Beautiful image, Robyn.
    It’s very calming and peaceful. It’s a scene that I’d to see every night before darkness falls.

    • 🙂 thanks Victoria… yes – wish I could live right in view of this beachscape! I tried to make it a ritual to get there as much as possible this winter and bask in the transition between day and nightfall. Soothing for the soul!!

  4. And some still claim God has yet to be all colors. . .
    Tidal towers kneel for showers
    Dunes sit and contemplate touching syllables slurring it’s punctuated purity

    Your photography is mind blowing, apologies for booming my brain on this late hour.

  11. A spectacular picture, God gives us magical moments in each sun or putting of the Sun, the beautiful light that reaches the heart and soul and we know that we are alive.
    Your words caress the beautiful scenery.

    April 19, 2012 at 8:18 AM

    • Thank you Carlos for such a lovely comment today. Yes, I agree the Sun and it’s illuminating magic are Divine and life-affirming. So great to have your eloquent feedback!

    • Thanks KT! Yes… It did seem like a fleeting moment:). Always feels like a sad goodbye when I am witnessing the sun is making its exit.

    • Thanks so much Scott… yes – we have some pretty amazing beaches here…still off-season so peaceful, but soon to turn into a resort-community for summer wihich is a lot more populated – transition for sure:)

      April 19, 2012 at 7:16 PM

      • You’re welcome…I’ve always found off-season on the beaches to be so much more peaceful…even if it’s more cold, rainy, or whatever. Enjoy your transition. 🙂

        April 19, 2012 at 8:37 PM

      • I will likely “take cover”!! 🙂 I like it peaceful too!
