Skywatch Friday: Sweet Dreams

surfcity

Good night, Surf City. Standing on the boardwalk at the public park there and watching the day drift West, leaving me in the crisp winter air with cold fingers and quiet--was magic. There's nothing like a welcome solitude. Some days I just crave the peace. Most days, in fact. I love when I find it.

  1. I'm trying to make out if there is a line of lights in the middle of the picture. Beautiful scenes reflected make me reflect.

  2. I LOVE that place, and I love this shot too. You captured the soul of it perfectly Sandy. I was there New Year's Eve and saw much the same thing. Thanks for taking me back there!

  8. The pink glow of the sunset and the trees' reflections on the water are like the hum of a quiet Gregorian chant.

  24. Sandy, that is breathtaking. Gorgeous light and reflections. I find that the older I get, the more I don't just crave solitude but actually need those quiet peaceful moments to survive.
