After Irene

Hurricane Irene blew through bringing floods

and high winds.

The beach disappeared under a high tide

that washed the kayaks into the playground.

The storm had other consequences, not least the debris and getting dressed in the dark.

But we ended the day as we usually do, watching the sunset over the bay.

Long Island Sound

Sailing at sunset, into the thunderstorm.

Big Pink Sun

Setting sun over Lloyd Harbor with Huntington Lighthouse in the foreground

Does this give you any idea how cold it is on Long Island? Given a sunset this pretty I would normally be dashing down to the beach to document the free show but when it's this cold, 22F (-6c) but feels like 7F (-14c), I'd rather shoot it from inside!

Will this table suit?

The big disadvantage of kitchen renovation is having to eat out all the time - unless you have this view and glorious mid-summer weather. The Wednesday sunset sailing race across the bay provides the perfect backdrop for strawberry, blue cheese and pecan spinach salad and a glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc.

Last Night

A cocktail followed by:

the setting sun over the bay

an inside joke

sparklers after dark

music and dancing at a local bar - expanding the evening and the summer fun...

Red Sky at Night

There was a terrific thunderstorm last night and I shot this in the middle of it (from the safety of the porch). Kind of looks like the house is on fire, doesn't it?

Another Evening, Another Sunset

Suffice to say every one is different and every one a winner.

This is from Saturday. I had let the battery on the Canon rebel run out and I didn't think it was going to be a stellar sunset so I only had my iphone. It turned out pretty good regardless - a little Turner, a little Rubens - pinks, orange, purple and grey-blue. Click, as always, to embiggen.

Orange Glow

Sunset on the deck overlooking Nathan Hale Beach, Huntington Bay, Long Island. What had started out as a warm evening with a not terribly promising sky transformed into this magical moment. Un-retouched, uncropped; just as it happened around 7:30 PM on Friday April 24. I can hardly believe this is New York in late Spring.

Just another spectacular sunset. March 11 2009.

A Happy Ending

A neighbor just called to say the damn dog was running around the Village. Of course when I looked for her I found her in her usual place - guarding the bridge. Either she got out and got back in again or there's a Polly lookalike out there. While I was thanking the neighbor I realised there was a gorgeous sunset and I bolted to take some shots. Who knows how long it will be before we see another? Anyway, added bonus when I downloaded them. Do you see what I see? Buds! Buds on the dogwood tree! Spring is coming. Yay!

There's no arguing with that

Driving into town yesterday evening to eat sushi I turned to Steven and remarked on the gorgeous sunset.
"Should we go and watch the sun set first?"
"I don't think so, hunger trumps beauty".

Sunset toward Huntington Harbor

No words.
