More Reruns (sorry)

This is a post with photos from one of the first posts I did on my other blog. This is the post in it's entirety from March 14, 2006.

Sunset Pics

Pic(s) of the Day
I took these a few years ago on 12/15/2002. They are of THE most colorful sunset I have ever seen, and I am a sunset connoisseur. One pic shows the colors in all their glory. The other picture, with the tree in it as a reference, is to prove that I didn't fudge the colors. They are true to what actually appeared. At work, I've had to give copies of all the ones I took that evening because as friends found out I had pics of that sunset, they all had seen it, but didn't have a camera with them. I am still so glad I had ours that day. This is the Indian River Lagoon in Brevard County, looking from Melbourne Beach toward the mainland of Florida.

Since taking these photos in 2002, I've seen a few other sunsets in the same "ballpark", but none quite as amazing. This one still tops my list.

I'm also sorry to report that that amazing tree in the second photo was cut down a few years ago. Like the old song says, "they paved paradise, and put up a parking lot." I'm not an environmentalist but I sure hated to see that magnificent tree brought down so the adjacent dentist's office could have about 4 more parking places.
