Painted skies, silhouettes and warm glows

Painted skies from an evening in Aptos, California. A few pictures from the travel album -- for the meme, 'catching the light.' Enjoy the sights>>

Sunsets are mesmerizing. What better way to end a day than watch a sunset? And even after the sun goes down, the effects are there, up in the sky. Look at these painted skies from an evening in Aptos, CA.

The sun had set. The skies looked painted and the silhouettes of trees and buildings seemed to enhance the late-evening-light in the sky.

Aptos is a seaside town on California’s central coast.

The location is Seascape Beach Resort, Aptos.  And because it lies on the coast of Monterey Bay, it is a great place to watch the sun set in the Pacific Ocean.
