One of Salt Spring Island’s Two-Sided Views
Lots of places have a two-sided view; we’ve seen them before in the last six years of Salt Spring Photos.
It’s easy to get ‘focused’ on what is directly in front of you. But it’s always important to take a look behind as well; in this case a couple fishing on the dock, away from the sunset, and with a fabulous pastel sky to the east.
And, while musing, I might as well add the following:
Sunrise views are often better before the sun actually rises. And sunsets are often better after the sun sets. Yet most people, arrive for the actual sunrise and most people tend to leave immediately after the sun sets.
The sky at sunset this day was mostly grey. A few people who came to the pier to view the sunset and take a few photos left disappointed the minute the sun set. They saw neither the beautiful west sky nor the beautiful east sky.
