October Sunsets

Autumn sunsets...


I think if, like Snow White, someone woke up on the beach after months of sleeping, they'd immediately know it is October.

The sun sets far south, beyond New Jersey...

.... off towards the big tanker ships.

But it's the light that tells me it's autumn.

The oranges, the purple, the black streaks on a turquoise sky.

No longer the soft pink glow of spring and summer or the cold yellow of winter...

These are Halloween banners, trailing gleefully across my sky.

I love to walk on the beach at sunset...earlier each day...but still perfect.
