Are you going to miss the sunsets, Chris?

At least you have family down there, like me, and can visit. We get the best of all worlds, your family and mine.
I'm sure he'll miss the sunsets. He'll probablly have to settle for something like this. I know it's not Florida but it will do in a pinch.

The sunsets are really cool down here sometimes, but I get them up north too, almost the same as here sometimes.

My mom and step dad are moving up in March so they are the last of us to go back up.

Sunset, Chesterfield, MA 2007

Not doubting that "nice sunsets exist elsewhere," but do the sunsets in Tennessee come with automatic color enhancing like the photograph? Or do you pay extra for that on a premium mountainview lot?

Love the last one.... dark storm clouds over sunny beach and emerald waters.

This summer was actually fairly quiet for storms from what I remember a few years ago, which is a drag because I love watching them come or go over the water from my office window!

The pic is of a sunset in New Hampshire. I've seen sunsets in that state and in the one I am now. They don't need color enhancing from Photoshop or any other software. That was kind of a silly remark. The same could be said of some of the Florida photos. But I've lived in Florida and New England and know that sunsets in either area - or Tennessee for that matter - need not be enhanced.

Why does there constantly have to be these nasty remarks from both sides? I asked a nice question to Chris about missing sunsets and then there is a wisecrack about New Hampshire sunsets - which backfired because I lived up there for 33 years - and now this cheap shot.

This forum is going to heck. It really is.

When i used to live in Florida this shot would have been all sand dunes, now its called Sand Key and its wall to wall beach bunkers, think i preferred the dunes..,another mile up the road is Clearwater beach.

No enhancing done there at all. Thats a actual photo of Lake Winnipesaukee. Sunsets like that are a common occurance. Come up and watch the sun go down behind a 4000 foot mountain and you'll see what a awesome sunset really is. I never understood why people got so excited about watching the sun set into the gulf. Rather pale. By the way, those views actually came free with my land.
