Another beauty Bits, love the ripples on the water and the sun's broken relections. What are those stick like things? Are they trees?

Bits-n-Pieces on September 17, 2009

Thanks Marbiz! this is one of the best sunset spots around here, though most of the visits there this year haven't been on good sunset days.

The trees are dead trees tied to posts as channel markers. The channel into the little harbor here is really narrow, and almost dry at low tide. the boats can't go in and out of the harbor during low tide.

Very cool! I agree with marbiz on the broken reflections of the sun on the waves.

Bits-n-Pieces on September 17, 2009

Thanks Guy and Norrel and again to marbiz and especially thanks because its the broken reflections that I liked about this one, too!

Hi Bits have you thought of enlarging or cropping just the sun and it's multilple reflections on the ripples? I almost missed the effect while I was looking to see how the "Rule of Sixths" ( don't want to mistype that) was applied. I see why Guy said "Cool".

Hi Tery - thanks! I do have a crop of that that I might post. BUT the lesson is that you must double click on ALL my photos and carefully check all aspects of them! ;)

LOL Bits Actually I zoomed in and cropped the photo and use those sundrops as the wall paper for my cell phone. I was using a close-up of the "Spider DNA" so don't tell Guy his pic got bumped :)

Well done Bits you are sure coming up with some brilliant sunsets. Great work.

Very nice picture!

Best regards from Hungary!

LOL Tery - 'Sundrops' ! That's good one!

Thanks Dianne and Pintér István. This one was hard-fought for! I'd been by there several times over the summer but the sunsets weren't anything. So it was great to finally get a nice one with color andthe horizon nice and clear.

Yep, I'm likin' this one pretty much. One would never expect the NE for the location, it has a very tropical look, Bits. It looks like you're free to use whatever rules float your boat.

Bits-n-Pieces on September 25, 2009

thanks n1! It feels so tropical, there's even a guy who plays steel drums at sunset in the summer. At low tide, you can be walking way out on the flats and hear the steel drums and his singing floating out to you. It's a great little hidden spot. So funny, I know people who've lived on the Cape for years who've never heard of this spot.
