It was comfortably cool and pollen free on the flats tonight. The play between the afterglow and sharp clouds along the horizon was spectacular.
I often go to the National Sea Shore on Sunday mornings to catch those sky burning sunrises. But today was overcast and otherwise more toned down. I went to the bay side of the Cape. Clouds on the horizon played with water and sand making for a meditative, almost hypnotic experience.
The steady breeze from the bay added to this otherworldly experience.
The crowd was sparse for an August sunset. However, it seemed everyone was enjoying their time on the flats to catch a sunset at low tide.
I managed to find a somewhat open area on the flats that night. Late in the season during a stretch of humid weather, plenty of people and insects were out.
The speckled appearance of the reflection was caused by the many insects hovering over the tidal pool.
Clouds moving along the horizon, the moon getting almost full, and the tide erasing footprints on the Brewster Flats, all occurring at the same time tonight. Kind of crazy.
