Shutter Story (#14) - Sunset Gull

By
Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

I disappeared for a week in writing new blog posts. The family and I were away up in Cape Cod for a terrific getaway week. Sunsets and sandcastles and some much needed rest! :)
The above shot is now in my sunsets collection. The gull happened to join in the shot and I was more than happy that he added to my composition. Sunsets on the beach are awe inspiring!
How's your Cape Cod knowledge? Can you identify the lighthouse in the photo below. If you can, you'll know which town we stayed in!

I am calling this series Shutter Story Sundays (that link will show you my previous posts). I have been pulling out of my photo archive to share both old and new shots on Sundays. They aren't strictly "Speechless Sundays", but I'm hoping that group won't mind ;) and I'll also post to the photo blogger group. Each photo will have a very short narrative and then I'll let the photo tell the remaining 1000 words of the story. hope you enjoy! craig

Hi Craig, I just LOVE the cape, and I'm pretty sure that's the one in Chatham just down the road from the beautiful Chatham Bars....right?

Oh, I just went back to read all the comments, didn't see Andrea's......I grew up summers on the bay-side in Dennis, and spent 2 years appraising Barnstable county from 2008-20010! RI is very nice, but my heart is at the Cape! Nice pictures!

I love the sunset picture gull and all! I couldn't help but notice that all of you had coats on in the pictures. Was it cold up there?

Sussie - good observation - daytime highs that time of year are 70s, but evening on the beach (sunset) can  be just a little chilly, but not too bad, still very enjoyable!

Melissa - I love the Picasa photo app (free app by google) - you can see my blog post creating collages in picasa for a how-to guide to how I do these images

Cameron - thanks, appreciate fellow photog kind words :) nice to have connected with you here on AR - and BTW if you don't go for rainmaker right away, your profile pic will show up on your comments at the 10,000 point milestone - so if you start to blog, you'll be there soon

Craig I was going to guess Chatham or Wellfleet because of the beach, not the lighthouse.  The Vineyard is a great place to visit in the Fall, and you'll have a better selection for places to stay than in the Summer Tourist season.  Two more words, "Chilmark Chocolates."
