With winter almost over, and many wishing we hadn't cancelled our beach vacations due to Covid concerns, the one thing to comfort us is a spectacular sunset.

When I think of sunsets, my head immediately goes to Hawaii, Key West, or any island in the Caribbean.

Why has this been engrained in our heads?  It's simply not true that the best sunsets are south of New England.

Did you catch the many pink skies at night over the winter months?  There were plenty of blazing pink and blue hues, looking like masterpieces in the heavens.  These ah-ha moments gave us hope for summer arriving soon.

This made me think about New England, and all the beautiful sunsets we have year-round.

Summer evenings are made for watching the bright yellow sun slowly lower over the blue water and disappear all ablaze.  Orange autumn sunsets play off the multi-colored leaves as a change in the wind reminds us that winter is not far away.  Winter sunsets are always bright pink and blue, a pleasant surprise in the colder months. And then there are spring sunsets, the pre-cursor to summer, with yellow, blue, and white sunsets warming up the horizon.

Enjoy these photos and remember you'll rarely see a lighthouse or sea smoke in a Caribbean sunset.
