Whimsical Sunsets

Three things cannot be long hidden:
the sun, the moon, and the truth.

After a very lazy Labour Day weekend, we decided on a whim to jump in the car and head to my favourite beach in Port Cobourg to photograph the sunset.

For me, nothing beats a stroll on the boardwalk, taking in the view of the Breakwater Lighthouse and surrounding scenery. For the last few years, the lighthouse has been in need of a spiff up. Town council gave the go ahead for a makeover. This little paint job cost the tune of $56,500! Seems a lot don't you think?

 If I am lucky and the lottery fairies find me, I think a beach front home would suit me just fine!

Venus even made an appearance! During the month of September you can view Venus about 1.5 hours after sunset in the west sky. If you wait a bit longer, you will also find Saturn above and to the left of the moon. I think it was too cloudy and maybe a bit too early in the evening because we couldn't find it.

The sun rises just behind the lighthouse so I am hoping to muster up the energy to photograph it before it gets too cold. I'm not a morning person, so it actually might be easier to just stay up and head out that way before daylight!

All of your pictures posted this week are pretty, but my favourite is the last one, with the port tag reflection.... Very graphical, stunning composition.
