Sunsets on Cape Cod rarely disappoint. This time I “almost” caught the green flash that occurs just as the sun disappears and part of the color spectrum goes away, leaving green. I saw the flash of green and captured the sun being just slightly to the green side of yellow, but didn’t capture the full green that my eyes saw. Oh well, better luck next time — and there will be, hopefully, lots of next times.
A overcast, somewhat chilly, but beautiful day to be out on a whale watch today. As we headed out from Provincetown Harbor we were into the wind and the boat ride was like a roller coaster crossed with a water flume ride. The folks who stomaches were not “sea worthy” were in pretty bad shape. But for Hubby and I the only challenges were to stay standing as the boat rolled and pitched — keeping our eyes on the horizon for the water spouts of whales. Out on the South edge of the Stellwagen Bank the whales were feeding, diving, breeching, and in general providing a great nature watching event. The bright sun was the only thing that ruined some of my photos but the day was great.
