Last time I went to the chiropractor I had a 6:30am appointment. I decided if I was going to be up and out before the sun rises I might as well take a picture of it (see Peaking Through). The other day I had a 6:30pm appointment with the chiropractor. I decided it was only fair that I take a shot of the sunset.
This shot was taken from King Caesar’s Road in Duxbury. There is a small promontory (yup had to look that word up) that has a pathway that leads to a bench where you can sit and watch the sunset. There is also a stone memorial to Ezra Weston located here. Weston was known as “King Caesar” for his success in shipbuilding and shipping; Lloyd’s of London recognized him as the largest shipowner in America. The King Caesar House (1808) is located just down the street from this spot. It is now a non-profit museum that you can tour during the summer months.
Dad and I walked King Caesar Road one morning this week and went to this very spot. It’s beautiful any time of day.
It’s a great road and I tend to take it a little more often on the way back from the beach. Dad should take his camera on your walks. He could be a guest blogger for me sometime!
Nice. I like the composition on this one a lot.
Gorgeous picture AND a bonus history lesson. Nice!
Just gorgeous, James. And I really love the composition…especially the bird on the ramp to the dock…nice little touch!
There are actually a whole row of birds sitting on the railing from the left of the dock all the way to the right on this image. At one point I had processed it so you could see them but I liked the image darker and more of a silhouette.
