As the season shifts from summer to fall
nighttime begins to stretch, lengthening shadows
and shortening the day
Light plays hide and seek with the sun and clouds
painting with colors only nature knows
The photographer frames the bride in the glow
of the setting sun
and she turns, and smiles washed in the soft warmth of the sinking sun
and the dog frolics, running the gauntlet of kelp
through the rivulets of salty water as the low tide starts to rise again
At the edge of nighttime, light creates silhouettes
shadowy outlines framed by light
As I head for home, the lights come on
darkness is near
Those who play at the beach into the night
build their bonfires
and settle in
fall’s nighttime beach
I like the bicyclist.
Lovely words to accompany lovely images. I enjoy visiting the beach through your photos.

Great photos but loved the one of the cyclist the best; found it really beautiful and serene. Nicely done.
