January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

This has such a strength of feeling to it . . a strange intensity.

You don't often see the word 'sundown' Judy... usually sunrise or sunset, it's nice for a change! :) I love how the foam forms on the edge of the wave, the colors are fabulous and I still see the sun before it slips away for the night... and as I write this the snow is falling full force.... AGAIN!! :)

@Carol: I too, like the word "sundown" ... or we could call it 'turning earth' I suppose. <grin> It was a beautiful evening with the colors constantly changing. Enjoy your snow for me. ;D

I love the Phrase "sundowners" it fit´s to this Image somehow.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: I searched to see what it might mean beyond what I was referring to. As it relates to patients with dementia or Alzheimer's it's not such a good thing. I'm wondering how you interpret it.

Gorgeous scene and frame; and loving the neutral colors that remind me of sea shells!

11 Feb 2015 6:42pm

@RBL: I find it interesting that the color turns pale when the sun's light is obscured. I liked the pastels too.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A great composition with eye-catching elements that come together nicely, such as the colors, textures on the water's surface, pilings and animated sky!!

@Steven: Thank you, Steven ... a kind comment.

For me it means being in your twighlight years.Taking it easy,enjoying life just watching the sun go down.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Good, Ant, we're on the same page ... or better yet, we're in the same phase as your parents. Sundowners. Twilight years. ;D

Still a busy sky trimmed in nice, so cool! But the water fascinates me even more with that eternal movement and the change of colours...Here is a metallic touch announcing the falling of night!

@Japanalia: I'm happy you liked the water in this image. I did also, hence the 2/3 water and only 1/3 sky. It was a magical evening.
