Day's End

Escaping the day's heat at a local beach in time to catch the sun setting
 

The ever-changing sky painted an extraordinary canvas of swirling colours
 
 Hordes of people were similarly cooling off - families having picnics on the lawns, others strolling at the water's edge, still more playing beach volleyball and some
just walking the dog
 

Although the wide variety of amazing treats inside this establishment were very tempting,
a delicately flavoured ice-cream did the trick!

. . . while on the other side of the sky, the melon-shaped moon was making
its presence evident

and a week or two ago I spotted this from my garden  (is it any wonder I continue to have the "travel bug" !?)

With continuing thanks to the respective hosts, I am joining the throngs contributing to

Beautiful soft tones and colours. Stunning photos!

Beautiful crepuscule light over Henley Jetty and yes seeing jet-planes - heading-out to some far flung corner of the world certainly evokes our desire to be up-up and away !

I'm always amazed at the huge variety of sky colors. I really like the second photo with the orange/pink/yellow hues.

Such lovely shots! The peach tones in the last photo are delightful! Wishing you and yours a joyful Christmas.

Hi Valerie, I followed you here from Skywatch Friday. Superb sunset photos over the beach. The last image of the jet over your back garden is brilliant! Have a great day. Jo

Hi Valerie, Thanks to your kind comment on my blog I just found yours! Wow, sure enjoyed the photos in this post! I am your newest follower. :-) It's hard for me to pick a favorite out of this post (they are all great!) but the first photo (sunset) is wonderful and so is your moon shot ... wow, so sharp and clear. Nice work. Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a fine weekend.

You are an outstanding photographer! I love these shots!

Thank you all for your kind comments (although somewhat embarrassed by your superlative description James! - truly I am simply an enthusiastic amateur). I do enjoy capturing God's handiwork through my camera lens to be shared with others, and there are so many photographic memes which allow us all to share our different parts of the world. So thank you all for your contribution to that process.
