“Sunset Cruise”

Shot from Mallory Square in Key West Florida,  a boat silently glides into the sunset to destinations unknown,  a peaceful ending to a wonderful day in the Keys.

    The reverse godbeams are really cool. I’ve seen the term for that effect on a cloud website but forgot what it is called. This definetely seems like a relaxing way to end the day though I bet it was still humid at this hour.

    Hi Bernie,
    Thanks for the beautiful photo!! I love Key West and the beauty it supplies everyday. I live in Charleston, SC and love this area, but would choose Key West as my second choice of living. Perhaps I can sell enough real estate here to move there some day.

    Thanks again,
    Mary Clement

    Wow…this is lovely. I wonder if anyone on the boat had a camera, or if it’s a view they see often and don’t think much about it. Sometimes, like my mother says, you just have to take a picture in your mind. Often those are the most profound and lasting.

    Hi Bernie. A fantastic photo …. brings a tear to my eye, I love Florida but unfortunately dont get to go there very often. I am from the UK and only visit once every couple of years. You should try posting some of your shots on istockphoto.com they look very saleable. I have a link to the site on my blog http://www.screenplayfreedom@wordpress.com
    Good luck with the photos.

    Thanks for all the comments, I didn’t get a real blazing sunset like I was after, but I got enough and it was a great time as well. And I will be back down there again this winter.

    Your blog is starting to take the shape of a Jimmy buffett Song in the making, bars, boats and butterflies! You do them all well. I would tell you about the increedibly dark orange sunset last night, but hat would not be nice. I was in Key Weird early this morning and got up in time to see a portion of the eclipse over the ocean. Pretty cool. You know you have talent when you make the water taxi look good.

    Ankush, this is pretty much what I saw, these beams stretched out over the thunderhead and across the sky to almost above me. I guess that happens a lot down there. I did do a curves adjustment to help bring them out more.
