SkyWatch Friday, Looking at the Sky on Friday / Waiting For the Sunset at Newport Beach, California USA

I was entertained by this kite-surfer while waiting for the sun to set behind me.
And, the moon...what an extra treat!

He worked for a long time to get ready and then was out in the water for less than 15 minutes.
But, something quite beautiful was happening behind me.


Click on photos to enlarge!
That magical half hour after sunset didn't disappointment me.

I became mesmerized with the water.

I have been taking pictures of flowers and snapshots these days. Because I think that it is not easy for me to take pictures of sceneries or landscapes. I am always impresed with your pictures of landscapes or sceneries.

Such beautiful twilight shots! The first one is a great shot with the double moon effect as the parachute plants a perfect sickle next to the real thing.
Yes, the light on the water is quite mesmerising.
