90 Second Escape: Sunset on the water

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: Sunset on the Water

One of the joys that indoor lighting has robbed us of is watching day fade to night. The gradual disappearance of light is a phenomenon that is different every day: clouds, length of day, humidity — any number of factors influence the sun’s last hurrah. Sunset is especially captivating over water.

With the opportunities for catching sunset after work diminishing by the day (the sun sets today in Raleigh at 7:44 p.m.; it sets a week from today at 7:34), here’s a little incentive to get out and take advantage when you can. Here’s a September sunset from four years ago.
