Picnic Island Park Sunset, Tampa Fl Oct 23, 2011

On a beautiful October afternoon we took a ride out to Picnic Island Park in Tampa Florida to watch the sunset. This picture jumped out at me with the color and silhouette of the people fishing. There is another picture in the Places Gallery of the sunset with the silhouette of my partner Santiago. If you have not been to a sunset in Florida or if you have not ventured out to Picnic Island Park do not miss this beautiful experience.
