We get some nice sunsets at The Holler.

Probably due to the sun setting over the ocean and the lack of ambient light pollution.

  1. Your big sky in the Holler makes for incredibly brilliant and showy sunsets, Cindy. Your second to the last photo is interesting as the boulders send off a subtle reflection.

  2. Apparently God’s gifts are free- as far as I know, you didn’t have to pay for such a glorious show- wish I could travel and see such wonders, but in truth, all I have to do is look out my window to see such grand marvels!!!

  3. again amazing πŸ™‚ pictures, although I prefere the old sand beach pics. Specially those with the They remind me of Nicolas Hayek Smart – respectively Swatch… πŸ™‚

  4. I never thought what the word breathtaking really meant before until I realized I was holding my breath as I tried to take in so much beauty all at once. Thanks. <3

    1. I don’t know what their power is precisely. Some people prefer sunrises, but for me there is something melancholy yet achingly beautiful about sunsets, the end of the finite day~

  5. Cindy,
    I am short of time, I need to take our Basset to pee :)) I love his short legs and long ears. In the past we had a Poodle :)) with gorgeous curly hair :).. I will show you soon his pic on the beach.
    BTW: laura yellowson. send you her regards….
    Forget it, her name is yochelson :)), is that right?

  6. Cindy, I know that I may have said this before, but this time I truly mean it – these are absolutely the best photos of a sunset that I’ve ever seen!!! Thank you for making my evening!!

    1. It must be a combination of factors that make the sunsets as they are here, our raised elevation, the low valley below, the lack of population and the ocean on the horizon. Sometimes the monsoonal clouds come from the eastern foothills and they make for pretty sunsets. So glad you enjoyed~

  7. Many times when I come to your blog – all I can say is…WOW!
    This is one of the times when even that word doesn’t do my expression of your captures justice.

  8. Cindy this is Jackie I had another blog about book reviews and it got hacked, I am now doing this one….getreadingnow.org is my site. I am starting over and wanted to let you know I did not forget ya, I was working 56 hours a week, I moved three weeks ago, still have not unpacked, and college full time…Keep in touch, Jackie Paulson πŸ™‚

  9. The photographs from different settings, all together make me wish to see a sunset again over Lake Erie. My closest source of water, reflecting the sun’s brilliance and beauty. Your choices were impeccable today on this post! Smiles, Robin

  10. Your choice of subjects are excellent,
