Salty Air Scenic Slide Shows

Thumpertown Beach, The Greatest Show On Earth – Slideshow

EASTHAM – The tide was low at Thumpertown Beach. The sun began to set. And then this happened.

We have seen magical sunsets a million times. We are connoisseurs of sunsets.

This, from Wednesday, is the best one we have ever seen – until the next one.

Sure, the sun sets all over the world. It’s probably spectacular in a million different ways every day all over the planet.

But not like Cape Cod…

  • Brian, It was nice to share the sunset at Thumpertown Beach with you on Wednesday. You are right it was a particularly impressive sunset. And special for me because it would have been my mothers 92 birthday. I miss her and she loved sunsets. Your photographs are gorgeous.
    So glad to have met you and find out about Cape Cod Wave.

  • Nice photo’s Brian. No matter how many times I look at a sunset, I never get bored by watching one, and like the proverbial snowflake, no two are alike. Thank you for sharing.
