Awaiting the Setting Sun by the Sea 09

Uploader's Comments

Friday and Saturday here saw glorious autumn sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures (up to 20 degrees C, unusual for late Sept). Had food and drink with chum on pub right on the Promenade at Portobello as the dusk fell. People were dining and drinking outside next to us, others walking on the beach or just sitting watching the colours of twilight change every few moments, a couple even still swimming.

Took a quick few photos from our table, sitting the camera on an empty pint glass (my "beer tripod") so bit rough, but hey, take what you can get (and I was trying to eat and drink at the time!)
