November sunset (with bicycle)

Sunsets here in Provincetown are always beautiful, but this one was so much more surreal than usual that I had to try to capture a picture.

I was on my way home from the grocery store and the light outside was so spectacular — everything was draped in a soft glowing pink and orange. So I took the long way home up through the cemetery to the highest point on the path and took a few stills and a little video with my iPhone.

It’s no wonder that painters rave about the light here. It really has an atmospheric quality that I’ve never seen anywhere else.

In the background is the Pilgrim Monument, a constant visual reminder that the Mayflower landed here in 1620 before heading off to Plymouth (all they got was a rock). In the foreground is my bike, still decorated with its Halloween-inspired spokes and cutout bats.
