“End of the Day” – Sauble beach

“End of the Day” - Sauble Beach, Ontario

“Moments never stay, whether or not you ask them, they do not care, no moment cares, and the ones you wish could stretch out like a hammock for you to lie in, well, those moments leave the quickest and take everything good with them, little burglars, those moments, those hours, those days you loved the most.”
― Catherine Lacey

My family and I spend a few relaxing days at Sauble Beach this past long weekend. Seldom does a day go by without a beautiful sunset over Lake Huron. Our weather forecast was for 4 solid days of heat and sunshine. The heat was there but the sunshine was lacking. Except at the end of the day. Each day of our stay, the sky on the horizon would clear up just enough for the sun to show through for a few minutes. I will share a few more images, but this was my favourite.

The sun had just dropped below the cloud deck and was hovering just above the horizon lighting the sky up in crimson, orange, and yellows in the brief moments before sinking out of sight.

Capturing these last few minutes can often pose a challenge as the camera sensor can make the image too bright or too dark. For me it’s that balance of showing the bright sun, yet retaining the structure of the clouds and the dark water surface.
