This month the theme is red. Of course, it’s the hearts and roses kind of month, but my roses are dead and the hearts are not out and about just yet. Valentines day is the day the blog goes live and my out of office meeting where I would typically capture something like this is only at the end of the month. So I was kind of struggling with what I would do.
I recently started heading up the road about 15 minutes from my home to the Loxahatchee National Park. I had not gone there at sunset before because it is a kind of lonely park. However, a few friends have been heading there and so I decided to go and join them. Truthfully there was about 6 of us, and it was fun to hang out with friends and meet new people. The sunsets always vary and what really attracted me was watching the mumuration of the birds. I believe they are Boat-tailed Grackles that swarm in mass to make these amazing patterns in the sky.
This particular night the birds were not out in mass but the sky fitted the theme of the color red. I had 4 different lens with me – my 28-135mm, my 70-300mm, my lensbaby sweet 35, and the lensbaby double glass.
Enjoy the setting sun!
Sunsets, like childhood
are viewed with wonder
not just because they are beautiful
but because they are fleeting
