sunset anarchy


Provincetown.

Wild sunset--so many things going on in the sky that I was giddy.

The scenes in my last post, part of the same sunset, were like outer space, deserts, volcanos. 

In a span of an hour I saw clouds like mountains, mesas, tornados, Turner landscapes, Constable clouds. There were soft pinks and blacks, luminous orange, a palette of blues, whites, and grays, even a rainbow. 

These and the pictures in my last post were taken at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown, Massachusetts between 5:37 and 6:37 p.m. 

It was exhilarating.

  1. Wow! Amazing images in this post and the last one.
    I always find skies like these make me feel very small and kind of put my troubles into perspective ...

  4. You tricked us! I thought for sure you were in the sky.

    I've always thought that if you lived on the water, it would look different every day but you've proven that I was thinking too small. It's different every moment!

    1. I was trying not to show a context, but didn't think of the looking from a plane though I can see that now. I wanted to show the strangeness of it. Some of those moments were wonderfully eerie.

    1. Isn't it? And I took these with my little point and shoot. Imagine what a real photographer could have done.

    1. I tried. I wanted to gaze, but also to try to capture it.

  9. Certainly beautiful. Your photos would make a great ad for Provincetown - not that it needs an ad.
