Lighthouse on Roanoke Island at Sunset

Thanks again to the team

I wanted to take a quick moment here again to thank the team here at Stuck In Customs.  They do everything from 24 hour support for tutorials and eBooks to making sure the website is fast to making sure our apps are fun and engaging and so much more.  So, thank you! 🙂

Daily Photo – Lighthouse on Roanoke Island at Sunset

Ahhhh – finally a good sunset!  I keep track of the sunsets like an insane meteorologist combined with a Native American shaman.  I do my best to look at each day and figure out how things will end up that evening.  Predicting more than a day ahead is almost impossible, unless you are at a special place on the planet around a certain type of year.

On this day in North Carolina, I knew that the late afternoon storm was a small cell, and it would pass quickly, perhaps letting the sun peak beneath the clouds to light them from the bottom.  And, to my satisfaction, it actually happened!

    Sorry that I’ve come on again but so many over the years have lost there live to tornados in the States.I’m just wandering why has not any one come up with ideas of building in the ground like little igloo shape roof tops.It may only be one story high and one can still have 4 bed rooms 2 bathrooms lounge and so forth.With hi tech today, and pumps,there should be no problems. My concern after watching the news here in Australia so many people have lost so much and I feel that some one should stand up and change things that people can live in that type of environment and survive. My heart goes out to all you people who are involved and have lost loved one,may Jehovah God be with you all.

  • Wonderful picture Trey. I love the changing tones and mood of the picture.

  • Preparation meets opportunity. Love when that happens.

  • Wowee, Trey!!!  That is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thanks so much for posting, have a great day 🙂

  • Amen to that, Casper.  So very sad!!

    For those who have an iphone, you can predict the position of the sun and the moon with an app called Focalware:

  • “Thanks again to the team” – being a sensitive, empathic, totally clueless, dyed-in-the-dark biped carbon life form on this spinning blue wet marble, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess this was meant to placate your goofing up the morning coffee run orders for the office when you drew the short straw. They do a good job though, don’t they…  🙂

    Beautiful shot! More than once in the last two weeks I have excitedly watched the skies throughout the day as gorgeous clouds billowed. I would get off work hoping for a nice sunset, only to be disappointed to find those clouds disappearing by the time the sun approached the horizon. It is about timing. I need to start rising earlier because I am finding the morning clouds have held the keys to some very pretty sunrises lately in my part of the world.
