It has become a bit of a pre Christmas tradition for us to take a family weekend break in the run up to Christmas. A little Christmas shopping and a good burst of family time at the end of a busy holiday season and ahead of the festive break. This was last weekend and we were blessed with arriving on the most glorious winter afternoon just before sunset. How could I resist? As the kids headed for the hotel sports and Nick the golf course, the photographer in me grabbed my camera and headed the short walk down to the beach to capture the sunset and relax into our weekend. I’ll share more about our busy weekend in a future post, but for now here is the view that greeted me, I hope you’ll agree, it was worth the walk and sitting in the winter sand to capture. Despite being bitterly cold and losing all feeling in my fingers, the glow from the winter sun makes it look much warmer than the reality.
From the Coast path a first glimpse of the sun.
A huge ball of fire out to sea.
Down on sunset beach watching the reflection across the water.
As the sun begins to disappear over the horizon a burnt orange glow fills the sky.
I hurry back up the coast path while I can still see my way.
