13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The sun sets on Easter 2015. Whidbey Island, Washington State
My youngest son asked if we could go to the beach at about 7 pm on Easter Sunday. We live on an Island, so we have many beaches to choose from. I picked Rocky Point, on the West side of the North end of the Island. The sun was still somewhat high in the sky, and I let the boys go ahead of me while I sat in the car for a bit. When I finally joined them I found them knee deep in the 48.9°F water, shoes off thankfully! They claimed to not be cold at all, and were having so much fun, I just let them play. I took many pictures but this one I'm in love with and captures the moment perfectly.
