Evening Falls At Charlestown Beach by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery
There is a very human attraction to early evening at the beach. Many go for spectacular sunsets, but there is more if one takes notice. It's not a need but does help in understanding the experience.
When arriving on the beach this particular late afternoon, the roar of the waves was audible from a distance. The air had a heavy scent of salt as the waves thundered. But a slow, almost imperceptible change occurred.
The change was the slow descent of the sun. In the east (as this photo views), the air changed and a pink sympathetic glow appeared. The waves started to calm as the air changed. The breeze that drove the surge dropped. The sound changed. The smell of the air changed. Calm surrounded us.
Sometimes, as humans, we need that natural change from tumult to calm. It's a reassurance that there is a place where calm exists in the world. For us, that place is the beach as evening falls.
(Note: Select any photo to see in its portfolio in a larger format).
Looking eastward at Charlestown Beach as the sun sets in the west behind me. The clear air gives brilliant illumination as the air begins to still.
