Golden Evenings

The late Autumn evenings on the coast have recently given light to some amasing long and golden sunsets. These have been so strong you only need a phone to capture the moment. Helping the situation are the wood fires that let out smoke as the air temperature drops away in the evening. Adding to a warm and husky golden hue in the atmosphere.

Todays picture is taken at one of my favorite locations, near the sailing club at Toukley. The boat out in front is owned by an old friend of mine, and the waters of an evening are useually calm like this. Although still a bit windy in the afternoon, the inner shorline is useually mirror smooth. While the boat rounded towards the shorline, the sparrows took flight, and a fish jumped from the water in front. It helped make a bit of drama to what would be a rather bland open scene.
