Sunset by the Pier

As I was taking a long exposure watching the beautiful sunset out of the corner of my eye I saw this little girl running towards me. For a second I thought she was going to knock over my camera, fortunately nothing happened, she simply wanted to play in the sand. I took one more click to get her in the picture, lucky for me I did just that.

I love the contrast of her pink dress. Sometimes things like this happen and you must capitalize on it.

Golden Naples Pier

A couple weeks ago some friends and I drove up to Naples Florida to watch the sunset. We kind of go stuck at my house watching Dumb and Dumber so we ended up leaving late. By the time we go to Naples the sun was already setting, and by the time we got our cameras out the sun was gone.

We were bummed out for about 2 minutes until the hues in the sky stared to change to this really nice golden yellow, then it was all good again. Lesson learned, no funny movies before a mini road trip….
