Everything looks different at sunset. I noticed the palm tree reflections in the afternoon as I walked up from the beach and thought, such a shiny car. At sunset I noticed the same car and thought, hmm I wonder if you could get a car painted like that, but of course you can.
I took a lot of sunset pictures this spring when we stayed at Sunset Beach in Treasure Island. Our balcony overlooked the Gulf of Mexico so I really didn’t need to do anything but open the door to see a sunset. Each sunset image is subtly unique and colors sometimes dramatically different. This one features a backlit Pelican.
I tried doing this a couple of times when I was young but just barely managed to kneel. I used to like body surfing and belly boarding though and remained mystified that human beings actually have enough balance to stand up on these boards and ride the waves. This young man was surfing before sunset on a Gulf of Mexico Beach near Treasure Island Florida.
We sat sipping margaritas waiting for the sunset on the Blue Docks in Cancun. I was amazed as we watch this speed boat. People were strapped into the back and the boat slowly went out into the center of the lagoon and then came full throttle at the pier. Before hitting the pier, the boat would do a sharp turn trying apparently to throw the idiot passengers from the boat. It was very loud and they would make a huge wave and then chug back out into the center of the lagoon and do it again. People pay to experience this and I am not quite sure why.
