CT: Fairfield County-Stratford- Lordship Seawall (Winter Sunset)

The sun took a while to set. It shared so many colors and seemed to brighten further before finally saying good night. I took advantage of its hesitation.

There were many vehicles parked along the Seawall waiting for tonight’s sun. I loved catching the sun’s reflecting in the beach houses.

The water was crashing against the rocks as the colors reflected on the water. Then of course there was the lighthouse in the other direction responding to the sun’s advances. I was pleased to capture its light.

I decided to play with my lens ball to capture the full scene. I laid it on the stone wall facing the sunset and beach houses.

It’s always sweet to see young love. This shot was not staged. They left before I could offer them the photo. I do love giving the surprise photos away. It’s very fulfilling. Maybe next time. Good night.

I posted some of the pictures above on Facebook and another group member shared she was inspired to write a beautiful and touching poem. She gave me permission to add it to this blog. This is a wonderful and perfect example of the unexpected gifts received by outdoor adventures with a bit of increased focus. Thank you Savannah Lynn Prezioso for sharing your lovely poem and for allowing me to post it here. Stay Safe!

Belinda Havdala Sheets you inspired me to write this poem this morning:

the sun hesitated
to say goodbye
she kissed the horizon
made an electric sky
and when she left
the moon did glow
whispering secrets
only she could know
she danced
across the sky
until she too
bid me goodbye
and once again
the sun returned
the sky was fire
my heart did burn
the birds cried out
and i did too
the world woke up
the sky was blue
the crows sang
from high above me
the ground was steady
the earth she loves me
i hesitated
to say goodbye
tears of joy
i did cry
