Everglades Sunset new
      #3941571 - 07/24/10 02:49 PM Attachment (53 downloads)

I was able to watch a beautiful sunset over the Florida Everglades on July 23, 2010 (00:00 U.T.). The Sun appeared to look like a brilliant Jupiter (bands across the disk) just above the western horizon. The presence of bluish-lavender and orange-yellow pastel clouds added greatly to the scene. I hope that you like it.

Thank you all for the kind compliments on my my Everglades sunset observation. It was such a beautiful sight that I wanted to record it. I did leave out the birds and the alligators! The best of luck in your own observations.

Wonderful, Carlos. I lived in Tampa as a small child and still remember the sunsets.

Lynn,

After watching that sunset I wanted to sip on a Margaritia! It was a lovely sunset to gaze at. I hope that you enjoy nice sunsets as well.

Erika,

Thank you for the compliment on my Everglades sunset observation. It was a beautiful sight to behold. I am always trying to improve my digital skills.

I would love to observe the Sun close up like you do. I look forward to your future observations.
