Silhouettes at Sunset ~ June 2, 2010 ~Anna Maria Island

Once again it is time to soak up another amazing sunset on Anna Maria Island. This particular night was no exception as the clouds hovered around the sun to create spectacular hues as the sun’s colors bled into the sky. One would think that after several years of shooting sunsets it might become tiresome but the truth is that every sunset has a uniqueness about it. Whether it be the clouds or the wildlife or the people who become my subject for my silhouettes, each night offers something different to capture…that is the excitement that compels me to return almost nightly to see what will unfold that night! Right now I am keeping my eye out for a Loggerhead Turtle to paddle up into the sand to lay her eggs. I have been blessed to see three turtle crawls as they hatched from their eggs and crawled into the Gulf of Mexico in the last few years. I am anxious to see what will take place this summer. Very soon we will have many new shore birds as they are nesting furiously at the north end where I walk. Nature is bountiful on Anna Maria and only enhances our sunsets. Remember to click on the gallery pictures to enlarge them. Please, enjoy this special sunset!
