The Setting Sun

The sunsets in New Jersey have been nothing short of amazing.
On Saturday we decided to go to my favorite spot on the Metedeconk River
to capture it's beauty.
I was sure it was going to be spectacular.
I texted my "sunset" friend Andee...
"sunset, heading to my favorite spot".
She was dropping her son at a birthday party
and said she would be sure to bring her camera.

  It was pretty...but not what I was expecting...

even with all those clouds,
no real color, and I was a little disappointed.

The next day, it was cloudy and around 3 o'clock, it started to rain.
Around 4, it stopped and the sky was full of departing clouds.
We were driving home from an early dinner out,
I wanted to go to the river, 
but it was too early and I did not want to ask the hubs to
go and just sit there for 45 minutes.

 We went home and at exactly 4:45...the sky looked like this!!
I texted Andee, "it gorgeous, right now"!!

 I can not put into words how amazing and colorful this sky was,

 the camera did not really capture it, it was breathtaking!!

  3. Wow this is absolutely stunning. There's nothing quite like a beautiful sunset. I don't think I've seen any quite this impressive before- those vibrant pink and purple shades especially.

  9. Hi Debbie. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before but you and I are neighbors. I live in Manchester. I completely missed the sunset on Sunday! I was busy doing Christmas knitting on my couch. I'm grateful for the photos.
    God bless and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  20. It is always so hard for the camera to capture what our eyes can see, but you did a beautiful job in capturing them on all your pics, even the ones at the river are very cool. Don't you just love sunsets and rises, I think because they are always changing and last for such little time is what makes them so amazing!
