Millway Beach Sunset

This image was a bit of a surprise when I took it. I was testing out a new camera (a Nikon D7000) and I needed something interesting to shoot. I headed down the road to Millway Beach in Barnstable. Millway is a great spot because its so nearby and it has a vast expanse of dune grass and some tidal flats. On a clear evening you can see all the way across to Sandy Neck and the lighthouse.

On this particular evening, Millway was surpising uncrowded and the light was calm and purple, providing a great contrast to the bright green of the grass. You can just barely make out the lighthouse across the water.
