Series: Take A Moment and Enjoy A Sunset


It’s been way too long since I’ve shared any sunset photos!  Here’s one from my home town harbor taken a week ago while we dined outdoors at Waterman’s Crab House.

    • Thank you, Jane! The GBH stayed there the entire sunset, then suddenly another GBH flew past and it followed. I wondered if it could see and was watching the other GBH somewhere else in the harbor. 🙂

  1. Stunning photos, Donna! I wonder, is the osprey migrated south now? There’s an osprey family that lives on a decoy telephone pole close to me and they stay there for most of the Fall.

    • Thank you, Ang! Our Chesapeake Bay Osprey have migrated south, they start leaving in August and are gone before end of Sept. Where are you located? Florida has year-round Osprey, but they usually abandon the nest during the summer and then return early winter to reclaim their nest to rebuild and start breeding earlier in the year (ours breed in March/April). It is so quiet here when I local Osprey leave! 🙂

      • I’m in Nova Scotia, Canada. That’s so crazy that here the Osprey are still around. It gets pretty cold at night in late October. I’ll keep an eye on them to see when they finally leave.

        • Wow, that is amazing! I have heard the dad will hang around until the final chick has migrated. Must be a stubborn teenager! Or fishing is way too good still. 😉 We see Ospreys that transient down the Chesapeake Bay fly-way, sometimes we’ll see one as late as early November. I thought I saw an Osprey a week ago but I’m not 100% sure. 🙂 Keep watch, I’m interested in knowing about such a late departure date!

    • Thank you, Simon! I was certainly enjoying the sunset sans my Nikon, but when I saw the GBH behind us, I knew I needed to take photos, even if it was with an old smartphone. 😁

    • You are correct, they are vapor trails from the planes coming and going at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, which is about 60 miles south as the crow flies from us. There are several restaurants around the harbor, a very nice laid-back fisherman’s town. One of the reasons why we picked this area to live the rest of our lives! 🙂

  2. Sunset photos…..”my” ideas for series list is getting pretty long! 😉
    Love your other recent posts as well. Eagles and kingfishers, oh my!
