Magical Moment 393, "The Same Sun"

On the Hudson Parkway on the west side of Manhattan, I saw this beautiful sunset. Immediately, I wished I could share it with you all. The way the golden light shimmered across the Hudson river, the black silhouette of the New Jersey shoreline, the dark planks of an old dock rising from the water, and giant wispy clouds that surrounded the the powerful rays of sunshine. 

I realized all I could do, was my best to capture it in a photo and maybe you could imagine how beautiful it was in person. 

And then I thought, maybe after you read this post, you could pop outside for a second or look out your window. Because although it may be a slightly different setting, it's the same sun.

You captured a beauty, Elizabeth. I love sunrises and sunsets. They're like two exactly alike.

Stunning, Elizabeth ! I can never just make one photo of a sunset ! I mean, can you ever have too many ?

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Linda, that's a perfect way to describe sunsets! Glad you enjoyed the post.

Rick, you're right. I took probably a dozen of this one! Thanks for reading. :)

You captured a beautiful sunset, despite the cold temperatures. Sunsets can be so uplifting.
