The silhouettes if people and their placement make this shot extra good. Nice.

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

I enjoy seeing silhouettes on the sand as the sun slips below the surface of the sea.

Lisa Wields Words - December 4, 2011

I love, lovely alliterations. 😉

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

As long as they aren’t “overdone.” 😉

2. Andra Watkins - December 4, 2011

Gorgeous, Nancy.

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Thanks, Andra. Drum circle sounds circled around as we waited for the sun’s farewell.

Interesting shot, Frizz . . . complete with a prisoner on his knees.

You wait ages for the sun to set then it’s gone in a blink of an eye!

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

I enjoy being at the beach as sunset approaches. The sun, sand, and surf, radiate with the mantra, “peace.” I don’t “wait” for anything to happen . . . I just remain present and watch as one moment unfolds into the next.

5. Lisa Wields Words - December 4, 2011

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Thanks, Lisa. Sunsets are a good time to breathe in PEACE and CALM and breathe out STRESS and TOXICITY.

Aah . . . that’s better.

6. sweetdaysundertheoaks - December 4, 2011

Beautiful sunset Nancy! Hoping to see a few of them in Venice and Siesta Key soon 🙂

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Excellent! Are you visiting family here for the holidays?

sweetdaysundertheoaks - December 4, 2011

No, we just head to Venice for about three weeks in late January to escape the cold and snow 🙂

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

That sounds like a perfect escape. Maybe we can get together for a drink while you’re here. 😀

7. Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide - December 4, 2011

Very nice!

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Mother Nature does good work! 😀

8. thirdhandart - December 4, 2011

A gorgeous sunset. The framing is superb. Waiting in the moment… a perfect entry!

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Thanks, Theresa. Some photos beg to be captured. 😎

9. sufilight - December 4, 2011

Oooh, I couldn’t stop staring at the photo, makes me want to be there. It’s a photo that gives me a sense of stillness and beauty. Beautiful photo!

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Yay! Glad you enjoyed it’s stillness, Maria. Watching the sun set reminds me let go and go with the flow of life and time.

10. jannatwrites - December 4, 2011

Perfect picture. It looks so relaxing. The guy leaning against the stairs watching the sunset was as interesting as the sunset itself.

The WordPress ‘snowflakes’ drifting across the scene do put a chill in the air, though 🙂

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

That’s “my guy” leaning against the stairs ~ Mr. BFF!

You’re right. The snowflakes look a bit at odds with the rest of the sandy scene. 😀

11. Maggie L R - December 4, 2011

I love the gentleness of this photo. Very peaceful and unhurried, perfect for the waiting theme.

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

We went for a walk on the beach, and stayed for the drum circle that night. As the drum beat out a percussive accompaniment, the sun descended into the sea.

12. Paula Tohline Calhoun - December 4, 2011

Lovely. Brings back many memories – of both sunrise and sunset!

😆

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

When I’m on the east coast, I enjoy watching the sunrise over the ocean swells. Here, on the west coast, I tend to sleep through most sunrises. 😎

13. Amy - December 4, 2011

Ahhh, lovely. Peace.

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Thanks, Amy. Glad you enjoyed it. 😀

14. Jackie L. Robinson - December 4, 2011

Absolutely beautiful….filled with such serenity….xoxo

nrhatch - December 4, 2011

Thanks, Jackie. Nature nurtures.

15. bluebee - December 5, 2011

A sight and site for a weary soul (and soles 🙂 )

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

Thanks, Bluebee! Nothing like a few well selected homophones to put a smile in our parentheticals! 😎

16. barb19 - December 5, 2011

Excellent choice – and I love the silhouettes – gives it more drama!

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

Thanks, Barb. That’s why I love this photo ~ silhouettes are “front and center” without revealing much of anything. A mystery.

17. adeeyoyo - December 5, 2011

Beautiful, perfect, inviting, what more can I say, Nancy? I love it!

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

Thanks, Denise! Wouldn’t it be FUN to all get together somewhere and toast the setting sun? 😎

18. Booksphotographsandartwork - December 5, 2011

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

I knew the beach baby in you would enjoy this, Linda.

19. spilledinkguy - December 5, 2011

A beautiful shot, Nancy!
(even though the WordPress falling snow is doing its best to mess with my mind here…)
🙂

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

Snow + Sunset at the Beach . . . doesn’t quite add up. 😎

20. jeanne - December 5, 2011

Now I wouldn’t mind waiting for that…

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

It’s a beautiful horizon to ponder.

21. sweetdaysundertheoaks - December 5, 2011

Nancy I think it would be fun to meet. I have met two people from blogging and both meetings were wonderful experiences!

nrhatch - December 5, 2011

Sounds great. I’ll shoot you an e-mail.

22. ElizOF - December 7, 2011

What a beautiful photo… I felt pulled right in to wait like that man as the sun set. Beautiful. 😉

nrhatch - December 7, 2011

Thanks, E! That man is “my” man . . . the infamous BFF! 😀

23. nuvofelt - December 9, 2011

I missed this last week. Beautiful.

nrhatch - December 9, 2011

Thanks, nuvo. We love having a beach close enough that we can head over to watch the sunset any time we have the time.

24. CMSmith - December 13, 2011

You really enjoy rubbing it in, don’t you?

Just wait til there’s a beautiful snow blanket over my world. . .

nrhatch - December 13, 2011

Some people really enjoy the Four Seasons. They love dashing through the snow . . . skating on thin ice . . . bundling up in layers.

Not me. I like wearing shorts and flip flops . . . while looking at picture perfect snowfalls . . . on Christmas cards. 😛

25. Tokeloshe - January 4, 2012

Beautiful!

nrhatch - January 4, 2012

Looking at the post right now does NOT make me want to head to the beach. It’s a bit too nippy tonight.

At the moment, I’m waiting for the jet stream to shift and lift the cold air from the Sunshine State. Brr . . .
