Gorgeous, Kamaly! Looks like summer is ready to roll!

Thanks, Nawitka! Yes, summer decided to announce its imminent arrival very loudly: first week-end in June, and it was already 93F. Then yesterday 98! The hazy heat makes for interesting sunsets, but I sure hope we don't have too many opportunities like this over the summer!

Hey kamaly, very very nice picture! Well composed with that shape of the riverbank repeating from fore- to background! And I like the soft colors!

Greetings, DrDope

Grrrrrreat shot!

Thanks, Dann! And to make those in the middle of the continent even more envious, this is what I was seeing when I turned around!!! It's hard to miss a good shot out on this island any time of day or year, so was a great little trip at the end of a horridly hot week-end!

Dann Cianca on June 13, 2008

Gollykamaly, do you have a tent there or what!? It's gorgeous ... I'd probably relocate just to bask in it!

LOL Dann - The wildlife refuge closes at sunset. No camping, and you'll cry at the only legal way to be out there over night: Fishing!!! And not only that, but in your big 4 wheel drive SUV to drive along the beach........( at least permits are needed, and beach access is only allowed outside of the plover nesting season, unlike at a similar beach on a sand spit south of Boston where the beach looks like an SUV auto auction on summer week-ends...)

Oh yes Kamaly, that is some sunset. Stunning is what I say.

Nice job and saved to my faves.

Thanks, Jim! I took my usual over-abundance of shots of it, and most either had the sky washed out or the marsh just about black. Thank goodness there was this one shot that seemed to get it just right!
