Sky and Clouds as the sun sets in the West

George and I loved our sunset cruise on the Schooner Alliance on September 22, 2013, in Yorktown, Virginia. This is the first sailboat (tall ship) I have ever been on --so I was so excited!!! We had perfect weather for sailing --and it was wonderful being out there in the water with no engine sound!!!! We also had a perfect sky and sunset for this romantic cruise... The photo above is one of the last ones I took after the sun was going down. I love this photo showing all of the clouds and colors. Hope you enjoy it also. To see more of our cruise photos, go to my other blog, Joyful Reflections. Click HERE for that post.

Hugs,

That sky is magnificent Betsy, great shot. I have been on tall ships but only during the day. It would be exciting to spend the night and get rocked to sleep by the waves.
