Cape Coral Yacht Club Sunset

One of the best looking sunsets I've seen in years magically emerged from a windy, cloudy and unimpressive afternoon.

The normal hot spot around sunset, the Yacht Club was almost empty when I arrived as the ball was dropping. Most weren't impressed enough and left minutes after. I saw a hint of color in the clouds so I waited around just in case there might be an after show.

As veteran sunset watchers know, the best part of the light show may come after the sun drops below the horizon. As was the case this night where it took 8 minutes from sundown to reach this point. The colors lasted only another 6 minutes before fading into the blue hour.
