November Evening on Sunset Beach

This image was made almost four years ago from Sunset Beach in Cape May, NJ. The actual sunset was fairly unspectacular. I decided to hang around for a while to see what developed. As the sun sank lower below the horizon it produced a light show in the clouds that was quite spectacular. The addition of the couple on the rocks in the foreground and the piece of wreck transecting the horizon gives a sense of drama to the scene. The horizon line, in this case, nearly bisects the mid-point of the total frame, but it works here.

I know it seems peculiar to visit a summer vacation spot in November. However, it does give one a new perspective regarding the natural and urban landscape without having to contend with vacationing crowds. Also, being the off-season, makes the rates very affordable.

Until next time...
