Sunset At Jones Beach
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While getting ready to leave Jones Beach for the day as the sun began to set in the background found this secluded area of Jones Beach where the Life Guards had just put up the signs for no more swimming, no Life Guards on duty. Waited ten minutes for some small children to get off of the Life Guard Chair then found the perfect shot with the sun finding it's way through the Life Guard Chair, the mountain of sand built up for the lifeguards to jump down onto, to the left ot the lifeguard chair in the background the famous Robert Moses Tower and to the right the Jones Beach Lifeguard's rescue boat. Took this photograph at approximately 6:00pm. Just as the beach was becoming empty. Jones Beach State Park (colloquially, "Jones Beach") is a state park of the U.S. state of New York.
