"Sunsets are the opening music of the night."

"Sunsets are so marvelous that even the sun itself watches them in the reflection of the infinite ocean."

"When the sun is setting leave whatever you are doing and watch it."

Quotes by Mehmet Murat ildan

I love photographing sunsets on the Island of my childhood, Deer Isle, Maine. Particularly in the village of Sunset! My dad was born and brought up in that village and lived a stone's throw from Sylvester's Cove where I take most of my sunset pictures because it's wide open ocean there. Nothing between me and my subject. The first photo was taken just at dusk while driving and stopping to capture what the inhabitants of this house in Pressey Village enjoy routinely in the Summer months.
I am looking forward to capturing more sunsets in and around the small seaside hamlets, coves and villages and photographing them when I return to my beloved Island.
