A peck of gold!

Staying a furlong's distance (well, almost) from ocean spoils you...........You crave for that brilliant sunset which you were once witness to and has stayed with you ever since.............This is one of my fav. from the collection of myriad sunsets that I have (the vermillion ones, the salmon pink ones, the blushing skies, the "urban" sunsets, the interstates sunsets ............................) Was taken on Madeira beach when one of the cold fronts had hit Florida last year. The sun melting into the sea......turning all to gold. Gilt-edged, eh??? :)

Hi Swati!
thanks for having visited my blog too!
I like this sunset: great colours and a palm and a signal siilhouette that show we are in US.

Happy to know you are Indian...my trip there this winter was for sure the mos magnificent travel I ever had with my wife.

Yes - I need seasons as well. I honestly can't image life without snow! But I do believe a trip to the ocean would be a fabulous thing to do soon:)

It's not important if I am in the valley and if it's the middle of the morning, I see this photo and it seems that I am coming to the beach and being able to feel the breeze on my face and to continue seeing everything until the colors extinguish and give themselves step to the first stars.

Regards and thanks for your visit,

P
