An amazing sunset at West Beach

An amazing sunset at West Beach

I actually had another post prepared for today, but after seeing an amazing sunset on Sunday night, I finished editing a few photos this morning and decided to quickly put this post and share it today.

In this post I will share some shots at various stages of the sunset, but as I said in the title it was an amazing sunset, so let me start with when the colors were amazing, I call this fire in the sky.

This was my first walk this year at the time of sunset, I hadn't really thought about that till now, but most of my walks this year have been early morning walks at sunrise, or during the day, but I had not been out for a sunset walk at all, but now with the days getting cooler and they last few days it being near or below freezing, I have popped out for evening walks, and Sunday was my first evening walk, and other nature was so kind to me, putting on such an amazing display.

But now that I have showed the peak of the colors let me go back to the beginning of the walk, I parked beside West beach here in New Bedford, with two things in mind getting my step count up and some exercise in by walking and of course catching a few photos.
there was some nice clouds in the sky as you can see in the next photo at the start of the golden hour.

The golden hour is the period before the sun sets where there are some warm colors in the sky, as opposed to the blue hour which is a period after the sun has set and gone down enough to give cooler colors in the sky.
Of course that is talking about sunsets, its the same in reverse for sunrises

I have shared may blue hour photos in previous post before sunrise, this post wont get tot he blue hour as I was on my way back home by then.

As time when on the clouds thickened up a bit and started to obscure the sun, making this cool sundog in the sky and a touch of a rainbow reflection on the water

A little later as the sun was just about to dip under the horizon and the colors were coming out nicely

And a short while later the sun was just set at this stage

Funny thing is I have noticed many times, people often come to watch a sunset, and as soon as it dips under the horizon, thats it there off to do other things, but I stay as often a few minutes later when the sun goes down a little further the colors can really come out, as I show in the first photo in this post

And that’s all folks

I prefer morning walks because they are mostly quiet and I rarely meet other people 😁
Stunning colours, JJ, this evening walk was definitely worth it, the first photo looks awesome 😍

!BEER and !WINE - both make a nice dinner with !PIZZA :)

Thanks so much
I to prefer morning walks as it is so much more quiet and peaceful

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Yeah, and most people who are walking early like the silence too, while the sunset people are mainly louder 😏

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Very amazing picture.
I'm very happy to see it.
and I also often capture the moment of the sunset. I never get tired of photographing those moments.

The cool thing about sunrises and sunsets is each one is unique

because nature always displays natural beauty. Its beauty is incomparable.

This extraordinary offering of nature, the beauty of nature will never run out.
Amazing photo of you. 🤗🤗🥰🥰

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Wow those are awsome photos @tattoodjay, the water looks like a giant mirror.

Thanks and yes the water was so still make for very cool reflections

have a great day

Yeah it’s true, have a good day too!


I've seen people do the same with sunsets; as soon as it's out of view, they head off to do Bigger and Better things. They're missing out.

I love the clouds in these photos; they really diffuse the light and give the pictures a really neat effect.

Yes I got so lucky on Sunday the clouds were just Perfect fir an amazing display

We had some really beautiful weather for November these past couple of days. I am glad that you were able to get out and take advantage of it. I need to get a real camera someday because I often find that my phone camera can't capture the colors of sunrises and sunsets the way they actually look.

Yeah I am glad to be getting out for evening walks occasionally Now and I started on a good day for it

Yes I think cell phone cameras are amazing these days but some scenes they just don’t do as well as a real camera sunsets for sure

Sunsets are magical for me , if I'm going to choose between sunrise and sunset, i'd go with sunset. I don't know but there's something in sunset that draws me. Maybe because sunset gives different sky colors . beautiful photos as always:)

I do understand what your saying and heading out for a sunset you have light and what clouds are about so you have an idea of what the sunset may be like

But in contrast sunrises you head out in the dark so have no idea

That looks amazing. I love this sunset. 🤩

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Oh you are most welcome. I think I saw you couple of times ar hivefest but seems we had not the chance to talk. ❤️

I was terrible on hivefest wondering around aimlessly LOl, even on a virtual world I am shy LOL

Oh I understand all too well, I spent most of first day just trying to navigate and a bit overwhelmed lol. Two people approached to tell me I looked "lost" and coming from an expressionless avatar lol 😂. Also when I get nervous I tend to talk a lot but getting nowhere lol.

When I get nervous I wonder off and hide in a corner lol

I am an ambivert. So I am shy but sometimes I talk a lot and appear to be an extrovert to cope lol 😂, then when I get too chatty sometimes I regret later lol 🤣 I get easily overwhelmed by crowds in real life, and I have lost social skills lol these past few years for obvious reasons. Most times since is just me hiking in the woods with my partner and the critters. Probably I have talked to trees more than to people since early 2020. Becoming a hermit hedgewitch lol 🤣

A hermit Hedgewitch LOL love that term
I can be an extrovert and crazy with people i know well and family, but in group settings I really do not cope well, so hide away as much as possible, so I haven't really become worse over the last year just always been that way

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Absolutely breathtaking views of the sunset. I prefer morning sun though but I have taken a couple of sunset views in the last few weeks. You have played wonderfully with the colors in all your photos.

Thanks so much, during the warmer months i mostly go out for sunrise walks as I did today, but when it gets cold and close to freezing in the morning then I go for day or sunset walks

I go out in the mornings for at least 5 days a week, baring when it's pouring too hard. Then I do with jogging inside. I used to be regular with badminton spending 3-4 hours in the morning during my college/uni days. I was part of the national inter-varsity badminton team during my engineering college days.

Thats impressive the time you put into badminton, and also you were in the varsity team

Inter-varsity team! That team consists of the best 10 players from all universities of India (a national level player) although I did not make it to the National team as I opted for business school and then got busy with my career.

Wow even more impressive I must say especially when India is so strong in badminton

This proves that nature is beautiful. Taking walk isn't just for site seeing it's also for exercise. One could be so busy throughout the day and forget the fact that the body needs just a little exercise. Little exercise and patience gives you an edge to live long. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful site.

Exactly, as Much as I love taking photos, my walks are more to keep active first

Sweet Jesus, JJ! @tattoodjay That first shot made me stop in place, right there. What a great shot!!!!

You are killing it with these photos!

Thanks I got so lucky that evening, my first sunset walk of the year and WOW what a sunset mother nature put on for me

I read that it was your first for the year and it is NOVEMBER!!!!!

Yes you read it right
Early on in the year well you know how that was and when Lulu came home I didn’t like going out well at all for quite a while and then I started early mornings while she was still sleeping

So yes that was the first time I went for a sunset walk

And after my Drs appointment this afternoon I will head out and catch another one


Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Your welcome @tattoodjay and you have a nice weekend.


You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

!LUV some !BEER now and again






@pixresteemer, you've been given LUV from @tattoodjay.

Absolutely nature at its best
