St Augustine sunset

Sunrises were easier to see than sunset when we were at St Augustine because of the weather.  We had rain or overcast skies every day except for this one.  Since the weather was nice we Googled “best place for sunsets” and it said Vilano Beach so, that’s where we went.

Vilano Beach is located on a peninsula of land just north of downtown St Augustine that sits between the Tolomato River and the Atlantic Ocean.  It is pretty much ideal for sunsets since you can look back west over the river and see the sunset over St Augustine.  (Not going to get sunsets over the Atlantic looking east, right?)

We found a small park with a walkway out over the marsh area that leads out to the river and enjoyed the colors in the sky.  It was definitely a beautiful evening.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
