Another First Encounter Sunset

Several times I’ve posted vibrant sunsets from First Encounter Beach in Eastham, MA and this post isn’t much different.  These photos were taken in the late spring with the sun setting rapidly, with the sky’s color quickly shifting from a soft purple into a rich orange hue.  Enjoy.

Dublin (Ireland)

Last stop on our Ireland vacation was a couple of days in Dublin. We were lucky enough to get stay with friends in Dublin (last picture is from the picture right outside their backyard) but one day we did do the obligatory bus tour around the city to hit the major sites. Below are pictures from across the city including Dublin Castle and the medieval city wall.  Next up we’ll wrap up our time in Ireland with a set of photos from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  Enjoy.

Dingle, Kerry (Ireland)

During our stay in Killarney, we took the short drive northwest out to the fishing town of Dingle located on the western coast of Ireland. While the town is quite small (couple of thousand residents) it’s also a busy tour stop thanks to its scenic views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. We only spent a couple of hours in the town and much of that time was spent running after Trey but below are a couple of highlights from the town and its surroundings. Enjoy.

Nantucket

Just two quick pics from a recent weekend out on Nantucket.

Same beach, different sunset

With the close of the summer, Andrea and I returned to the Cape for one last quiet weekend before we welcomed our new little guy into the family. We visited many of our familiar haunts including The National Seashore and Arnolds Clam Shack and to cap off the night we headed over to First Encounter Beach to take in the vibrant sunset. Unlike the last post, this time I had my tripod with me and was able to make the most of the rich colors and reflective tide pools. Enjoy.

As mentioned in the previous post, after a delicious seafood dinner in Orleans we made one last stop to First Encounter Beach for what ended up being the most epic sunset of the week. I unfortunately didn’t have a tripod with me but did my best with the limited light available. Enjoy.
