At the Close of the Day

Drove up Depot Lane to the Sound... there were clouds in the sky and it looked as though a colorful evening might develop. Off to my right I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye and with my zoom maxed out was able to shoot a seal, it's face to the sun, head and tail in the air. The atmosphere was very clear as the Connecticut shore line could be seen beyond the seal 17 miles away on the horizon. A very short time later the sun touched the sea then disappeared in a few minutes. Such a satisfying close of the day.
