I just missed the sun going down on the buildings in downtown Tampa. As I was crossing the Bayside Bridge after work, I could see the sun shining down and making the buildings across the bay look orange. By the time I got to the Safety Harbor fishing pier, I just missed it. The sun had gone down too low.
It was a cool, windy night. This guy fishing in his kayak was bundled up.
Birds heading home to sleep.
Pelican flying over the pier as it was getting dark.
A peaceful quiet night on the water.
Panorama taken with my phone from the parking lot.
I was meeting my husband for dinner near the Safety Harbor fishing pier and had a few minutes to spare. I stopped at the pier and took a few pictures but it getting dark quick. Most nights I’m driving home in the dark so it was nice to see a little daylight even for a few minutes.

Nicely captured set of images. Have a blessed week-end.
I love your pictures. It brings me back to the beauty of Florida. I am from Jacksonville but now I am working in Texas. Thanks for bringing me close to home. 🙂
Really beautiful shots. The lone kayaker shot is a classic!
love the one with the pelican
Oh yeah, even though it is warmer in Florida it still gets dark way too early this time of year. (I used to hate November when I worked, cuz it was dark when I went to work and dark when I came home.) No excuse not to get outside now. Except it’s cold here in oregon. Better next month!!!
We spent a lot of time in Tampa in recent years and there are some great spots there.
A tranquil sunset.
I really liked your photos taken just before dark. It gets dark early and fast here too. From our house to your house we would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
