Traveling Dog Lady: mid-January Cape Cod sunset photos

mid-January Cape Cod sunset photos


Yesterday was my monthly trip to Cape Cod to attend the Eastham Dog Owners' Assocation monthly meeting.  It was like spring there -- 45 degrees and party cloudy.  Another world from life in central Mass.  You'd never know the two places are in the same STATE!

I didn't bring any of the dogs with me this trip, and by the time sunset came around, I needed a doggie fix.  I knew right where to go:  Wiley Park where everyone walks their dogs in the late afternoons.  I had a lovely walk with three of my acquaintances and their pack of dogs.  Sorry Charlie Brown, next time!

Here are some pictures I took of the sunset.  I'm not pleased with the photos, my new camera doesn't take the glorious photos the old one did (same brand, same model supposedly).  The light on Cape Cod is miraculous, and these pictures do not do it justice.  It hardly picked up on the pinks and reds.  Ah well, next month I'll look at the settings more closely, maybe I have something set incorrectly, who knows?  (click on a photo to enlarge)

View from the parking lot at Coast Guard Beach, looking east (north!)

The rest of these are Coast Guard Beach




















The last four (which were really the first four!) were shot with an iPhone.  
These are at Nauset Light Beach, 10 minutes earlier, and east (north!) of Coast Guard Beach




Note the seagulls lined up in formation where the sand meets the water.  
They were gathered like that along the entire beach.
Not viewable in these photos are the several seals floating out past the breakers.
