A bench in the sun

As the sun sets in a blaze of glory,

There is no better place to watch the play

Of cloud and light

Than on a bench in the setting sun.

    The sunsets are absolutely magnificent over that stretch of water. How do you get to the bench? Have you got to wade through the water. Must be marvellous to sit on that bench and watch those sunsets.

    June 28, 2012 at 15:53

    • I took these shots from the shore. But you can wade over as the water is shallow.

      The local authorities have now fixed the jetty so you can get to the bench without getting your feet wet.

    Either way, your photo’s are beautiful.

    Truly glorious! Around what time can you see this spectacle at this time of the year ? Is it shallow enough to wade into the water to reach the bench?

    June 28, 2012 at 16:02

    • This is a sunset I captured at the end of April.

      You can wade out to the bench — the water is quite shallow.
