Easter Sunset Gloucester Harbor.
Last night’s saturated sunset from East Gloucester was arresting, becoming even more so after the sun set. The colors on the water momentarily reflected the voluptuous hues of the twilight sky, when very quickly the horizon turned glowing coral-pink-peach before extinguishing itself in purple.
The violet-orange on the water’s glass-like surface in the foreground looked as though it had been applied by paint.

Last night’s red sky was not today’s sailor’s delight. Is that old adage true more often than not I wonder?
Red sky at night, sailors’ delight.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.
Long Beach Sunset
Tonight’s sunset panorama from Rocky Neck’s Wonson’s Cove, with a pretty rainbow-like arch over the Harbor.
How fortunate we are to be experiencing a delightfully warm El Nino December although many regions in the rest of the country are not faring as well as we in the Northeast. Thinking about where we were almost to the date a year ago at this time…see the end of this post.

Love my neighborhood!
Today, late day, as happens so many afternoons, I looked up from my work and saw the sky beginning to catch fire–an irresistible reason to take a break and run down to the bottom of our hill to take a few snapshots. I am thankful!

Captain Tom Ellis took the Thomas E. Lannon out on a glorious sail beyond the breakwater, Celtic singer Michael O’Leary and Friends played music to the delight of everyone on board, many happy faces enjoying the sunset and a welcoming flock of sea gulls as they escorted the Schooner Lannon back home.
The beautiful double rainbow that Bill and Paul captured late Saturday afternoon had faded, but I did see this on my way home.
The sky was so gorgeous I next stopped at Smith’s Cove to catch the end of the setting sun. The hues quickly changed from vivid yellow-orange to orange-violet-pink.

We’re having a heat wave,
A tropical heat wave,
The temperature’s rising,
It isn’t surprising,
She certainly can-can.
First day of summer and first swim of the season! Last night we packed a picnic and went for a swim–the perfect antidote to a heat wave. Tonight, more of the same. We’re so fortunate to live in Gloucester, moments away from any number of beautiful beaches!

Shooting into the sun can bring out details you’d never see otherwise. This shot was taken last week. I never get tired of Gloucester sunsets. —Sharon
