sunset @ long beach, originally uploaded by airam94564.

Cranes stood as mute witnesses to this beautiful SoCal sunset at the port of Long Beach.

This is the view from the deck of a departing cruise ship.

  40. The colors are wonderful I like the curve of the land with the filagree of cranes silhouetted against the sky. Captured this way the cranes are lovely. It goes to show that in the right light almost anything can look beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  43. For a moment I thought it was a caravan of camels crossing the Gobi desert, but even knowing that they were cranes still does not detract from the beauty of the picture.

  52. Have problem with finding the right English words for commenting this beautiful scene.
    Tanks for visiting my blog. Yes, as you suppose: this landscape is soon beeing covered witn clean white snow - but not until the end of november/beginning of december they say. We moved to this area last spring - and we look forward to a real Norwegian winter with skiing and all. I must try to get a SkyWatch picture of the same motive with snow!

    I once took a cruise out of Long Beach and that's just how it looked. I was amazed to see all the wasted electricity from those huge lights being left on all night.
