Anna Maria Sunset ~ Rod & Reel Pier

Anna Maria Island is the essence of the sunset. Sunset is defined as the time when the upper limb of the sun disappears below the sensible horizon as a result of the diurnal rotation of the earth. It is also defined as the apparent descent of the sun below the horizon. Dr. Bruce Cordell, a rocket scientist, describes a sunset as “God’s signature on the day.” Dr. Cordell writes a brilliant blog on space and the future.
Yes, there really is such a thing as a rocket scientist. Another definition is the close, or final stage, of any period. Since today is my birthday, I suppose you could say yesterday was the sunset for that “particular year” in my life. A sunset also encompasses the atmospheric phenomena accompanying the disappearance of the sun. This is the substance for Silhouettes at Sunset. Because of the atmospheric changes, seasons, clouds, weather and the sun sinking into the Gulf of Mexico, each night presents herself with panoramic majesty and an original palette bouncing off the lens of my camera. Each sunset is unique and allows a different story to be told. Because sunset gazing is a ritual on Anna Maria Island, my silhouettes line the beach ~ whether it is in human, plant or animal form. So I invite you to join me as we observe another celestial happening. Be sure to click on the gallery pictures to enlarge them and please, enjoy the sunset!

Rates are down, prices are down and the buyers are up!! Anna Maria is ahead of most of FL as far as bouncing back and experiencing an active market. Europeans and Canadians are actively seeking ownership on one of the most beautiful Islands anywhere. With high season only a few months away, we will see our inventory diminishing showing giant steps in what has been called a declining market. There is only one way to travel once you have hit bottom and that is up. Think about it, when would you want to be buying a piece of paradise? Don’t forget that we just throw the sunsets and the laid-back attitude in for free!!  For more information visit Island Real Estate’s website.
