Monday Walk: Making time for the Sunset

_MG_1620 3-7

On our last day in Sarasota, we took a long walk along the shore in the afternoon after visiting the Selby Gardens. We then sat on a bench waiting for the sunset.

Here, Pelicans put out some fantastic diving shows. 🙂

Watch! A 90 degree diving, a combination of a perfect angle, right speed, and great posture. What an awesome diver!

These two guys turned their bodies and did a diving side by side! Wow!

Just a half mile away from the diving show, youngsters were practicing their water ski tricks:

“Mom, look! I did it! I did it!”, she was so proud of herself. 🙂

30 minutes before the sun was setting, I carefully set MF on my camera (no tripod), while hubby was calculating the sunset direction for me to aim. I was hoping to get a couple decent shots.

Let the photos do the talking…

  1. Looks like your sunset shots were successful! Beautiful images. I have learned that catching people, mainly strangers walking into my field of view, adds a layer of dimensions.


  2. Love stopping to watch the sunset when I travel. We rush through our day with so much to see and do. This is a wonderful time to pause and enjoy where we are. We stopped every night on our recent travels to Costa Rica so we could watch the sunset. Thanks for your lovely photos.


  3. Hi Amy! I just read your “time” post from a Thursday in February, and I am glad you had time for this fantastic sunset! 🙂 Great shots of the pelicans. They are so mesmerizing to watch. I was never able to shoot them as skillfully and elegantly (the photographing and the birds) as you, when I stared at them for hours during my travels.
