Delta Lake State Park
Although Saturday might have started a little rough as I watched the clouds win the race to the horizon and obscure my sunrise at Hinckley Reservoir, the day as a whole was wonderful. As sunset approached I debated as to which location would provide me the best view, Delta Lake or Bellamy Harbor Park. In the end, after considering the position of the sun at sunset, I chose to go to Delta Lake.
With the stretch of warmer weather we had experienced I did not expect to see as many people as there were out fishing on the lake. I’m not positive if I would have walked out onto the ice. I hugged the shoreline as I positioned myself to capture the setting sun along with some interesting cracks in the ice. Yeah, definitely sure I will not be walking on the ice any time soon.

Riverside Park, Indialantic, FL
When you are on the East Coast of Florida you have to search out unique locations to capture the sunset. Luckily, I know some pretty nice spots along the Indian River that never let me down during the sunset. Of course, it helps that the sky really gets into the show…

Delta Lake State Park
The first proper sunset of winter. I was being very lazy Sunday afternoon. Sitting on the couch reading while my cat Oliver was staring me down trying to convince me it was time for dinner. The sky caught my eye out the front window and I realized I had a good chance for a nice sunset. There was less than an hour before the sun would drop below the horizon but plenty of time for me to make it to my stand by location, Delta Lake State Park. Poor Oliver would have to wait until I got back…

Seven Seas Lagoon, Walt Disney World
On my Magic Kingdom day I headed over to the Wilderness Lodge to join a meet-up for a photo walk of the holiday decorations at the Magic Kingdom Resorts. When you are already at the Magic Kingdom, your quickest option for getting to the Wilderness Lodge is one of the boats sailing the Seven Seas Lagoon. I always love the views you get from being on the water, especially when the sun and sky combine to create some drama.

World Showcase, Epcot, Walt Disney World
Although it might not be the ideal scene, you have to stop and capture the colors. Walking around World Showcase when the sky lit up at sunset. No time to reposition yourself, you grab the view you have.
