Here is a picture of the sun tonight as it began setting over the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta. This shot was taken from the East Palisades Trail of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area looking west to Cobb Parkway as it crossed the Hooch.

Sunday night we went to the Lodge at Sea Island to listen to the bagpipe player, have dinner and roast smores. This amazing sunset over the St Simons Sound behind the Sidney Lanier Bridge was a bonus. This is a 5-image HDR photograph taken with a Nikon D800 and processed in Photomatix & Lightroom.
We took a quick trip to the Cheeca Lodge and Spa in Islamorada Florida the weekend before Thanksgiving. It’s a pretty amazing place in the Florida Keys just south of Key Largo; mile marker 82 to be exact. My brother, Father and I went there in 1992 on a boys fishing trip. It was a very different place back then. It has since burned to the ground and been rebuilt as a fabulous resort. These photos were taken on campus as well as next door at the Moorings which is the resort next door to the Cheeca. Sunrise and sunsets are simply amazing each day, and easy to see regardless where you are staying. The island is probably a 10 minute walk from coast to coast. We took a sunset cruise one night and there are a couple of pictures of that below.
