Sky Watch Friday - Sunset at Maitland River Mouth


If you want a good sunset or just a walk on the beach then the Maitland River Mouth, near Beachview, is the place. This is a view across St Francis Bay, looking towards Jeffreys Bay.

For more great pictures from around the world, visit the Sky Watch site. Just wait until after 19h30 Greenwich Mean Time, when the link is activated.

Perfect sunset by the sea.
Makes me wish to be there (*smile* I got to be more careful with my wishes, only moments ago I was wishing some snow like John in Norway is showing us this week!).
Still, I would not mind watching your sunset, while waiting for the snow to arrive. ;-)

Congratulations on being a Blog of Note. Eight thousand visitors you said? Mamma mia! :-)

Incredible colour and light

Interesting how the sun reflection comes to life right at the shore line. It really draws the viewer into the photo.

Sam said...

Great Shot! Love the colours - so rich and warm and inviting. We get a lot of beautiful sunrises where we are here in South Australia - probably more so than sunsets.

I am at a loss for words to describe how beautiful this photo is. Magnificent!

Congrats on being blog of note. This view looks like something from my town. I'm on the other side of the word on the Pacific Coast...I bet there is warmer water over there. Keep posting.

Oh, how gorgeous! Many years ago I took a similar shot to this at Sardinia Bay at sunset - long before I knew anythign abtou filters or exposures or anything. Sometimes, the raw materials are just plain good enough :) And well done on your well-deserved Blog of Note mention!
