Photos of Naples Florida sunset, day 2

This trip to the beach, I traded in my tennis shoes and socks for some flip-flops so I could finally get some sand between my toes!!

Took my chair too and camped out for the sun to set.  I knew where I wanted to be and what perspective I wanted most of the photos to come from.  I must say, and I am ashamed of it, that I didn’t let anyone linger in front of me for this one evening.

I owe the boys that ended up in the photo a sincere apology.  And must say that their playfulness ended up looking pretty good in the final cut.

The evening wasn’t without some frustration though.  Fishing along the beach leaves hooks and fishing line out in the way for the poor birds to get into trouble.  Saw one bird actually swallow a fishing hook with line attached.  And a Pelican with a hook in its side alluded the beach patrol.

Wish people would be more responsible with our nature.

No photos of affected birds are shown in this presentation.

Photos sunset cruise on Naples Princess

My hubby and I took the sunset tour on the Naples Princess http://www.naplesprincesscruises.com/  The cruise is through the Naples bay, out Gordon Pass, and just into the gulf.  A large part of the tour is viewing the homes of the rich and famous at Port Royal.

Now most people are ooing and awwing at the homes, while I’m aiming my camera lens above, and through them to get the clouds, sun reflections, and the sunset.

Have to admit the actual sunset was while the boat was turning around in the gulf and the turbulence was rough.  Impossible to take a sharp photo when I’m having trouble standing up.


Ok, so I also took some photos of some of the more unique architecture.  I do hope you enjoy the tour.

Sunset photos of South West Florida

Wow, it really has been mid December since I have posted a blog.  What can I say, life has been a priority the past couple of months.

These sunset photos were taken Tuesday February 21st.  My uncle passed away at 9:35 in the morning.  My aunt, her two daughter’s in law, current and ex, and Susan’s husband ventured to the beach to watch the first sunset with uncle Lou on the other side.

This post is in his memory.

He was a welcome beacon in our lives.  We so enjoyed sharing with him and having his smile and laughs with us.
