Shining

All photos taken on October 13, 2022.

Another evening, another sunset. The good news about October, is you do not have to stay up late to see this display. Each night we went down presented a different version. Like a fireplace, no two versions were the same

Shining sun, slowly sinking seaward, sparking shimmering scenes, sending spreading sand sparkles scattering.

Skies soften, subtly shaping shadows, swallowing seabird silhouettes, settling sea’s surface, stopping several spectator soliloquys.

Silence surrounds.
