neon.

The Cape Cod sunset on Saturday, March 17th, was one for the books. The evening sky unfolded in an orderly fashion, like each neon orange ray had a precise path to follow through the stretch of parallel purple gray clouds. We watched in awe as the casts of hot pinks illuminated the creek and as they dulled to fluffy pastels across the periwinkle blue sky. No matter how many brilliant sunsets you are lucky to witness in a lifetime, they never get old. Most of these were photographed at Paines Creek - the first beach in the town of Brewster (moving east to west, on the bay side.)

Beautiful Sunset! Nick laughs at me because I always take so many sunset photos - but they are just too pretty to not try and capture!
