A Florida Sunset

Florida Sunset, Robert K Rees Memorial Park

This afternoon I suggested to Marcia that we go out and capture a sunset, then get a bite to eat.  She suggested going to Cracker Barrel, so I had to find a place near Cracker Barrel in New Port Richey in which we could see a nice sunset.  Boy, sure found a nice county park that was just perfect for it.  And one of Marcia’s first pictures (above) was a great start to our sunset collection.

Robert K Rees Memorial Park

Robert K Rees Memorial Park is a small county park in Pasco County.  Like many, if not all, of the Pasco County Parks that are along the water, it cost $2 for parking, there are approximately 20 parking places, so the crowds are not big, and the views….well…….

….you can be the judge of that.  But sunset is what it was about, so here they are…

This is one of my favorite shots.  Un like Marcia, I was able to walk around and find different type of shots, while she was in her GoGo with Skruffy using the older camera.  I saw this seagull sitting out on the buoy fence, and lined it up with the sun as it went down.

After I ran around getting a few other shots, I came back and found him still sitting there watching the sun disappear over the horizon.  I think he had the best view of them all….

Here is another of mine that I liked….those folks, cuddled close together, just watching the sun go down….perhaps they had the best view of them all….

Here’s Marcia and Skruffy on the GoGo getting their own pictures.

Marcia got the sun going, going and then gone….amazing how the sky changed in just a matter of seconds, right before our eyes.

And then it was over….and they quickly shut the park down.  She sure got some pretty shots.

If there is a drawback to the park for a sunset it is only that you can’t get a good view of the skies off to the north, south or east…or perhaps it was just that there were no clouds in the sky to light up.  I told Marcia that we are going to be back on a cloudy day, that’s for sure.

Leaving Robert K Rees Memorial Park

As we drove away, we pass this small inlet off to our left, I turn around at the first place I could to the questioning of Marcia wondering what the heck I was doing.  I told her I saw a shot I just had to have….and what a pretty shot it was.  I wonder what that would look like with a sky full of pinkish clouds?  Can’t wait to find out!

    1. I think it was seeing all those Arizona sunsets in your blog and others whom I follow that inspired me to get out and see one ourselves.

    1. Yep, Marcia showed me that one and I thought, "Why didn't I think of that?" Sure glad we have two cameras now....many more opportunities to get good shots from different perspectives.

  4. Dave, from your comment on Another blog, I found out you said your RV fire was caused by a Norcold Fridge. What kind is in you new RV? I'm thinking strongly of replacing our Norcold with a residential fridge.
