Sky Watch - East and West


These two photos were taken from the same spot on a beautiful late summer evening at Point Wilson lighthouse. After shooting the moon rising in the east over Admiralty Inlet, I did a 180 and caught the sun setting on the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the west. One of those memorable evenings on the beach.

So pretty, especially the first one, which reminds me of a Maxfield Parrish painting.
