The Boardwalk

On a recent trip to Disney, I spent the day walking around taking in the magic. I explored some of the resorts and slowly made my way to the boardwalk area. After walking around there for a little bit, I sat down to a quick meal and a little relaxation.

It was getting close to sunset time so I started looking for something interesting to shoot. I noticed a sliver of sunlight peeking through the clouds. I found a spot that I liked and noticed the way the light was hitting the buildings. Since the lights were also turned on, it made for a nicely lit scene.

For the last half of the day the sky had pretty much been gray so I wasn’t expecting spectacular sunset colors. I moved around a little bit looking for different compositions and just enjoyed the way everything was looking. All of a sudden the clouds started breaking up and the most beautiful display of color and light that I had ever witnessed was appearing before my eyes. I started getting really excited! I had a very surreal feeling come over me. It was like standing in a dream. I was mesmerized by what I was seeing.

I kid you not when I say the light was changing every 30 seconds. This was one of the most awesome things I have ever seen. And just when you think it’s over it changes again. I took a lot of shots this day, but this one really stood out to me. I will never forget Sunday January 13th, 2013.

  1. Michael,
    Almost 6 years ago my husband and I went to Disney. One evening, after visiting Epcot, we took the boat back to this spot and then decided to take it over to the “Dance Hall”. We walked along the boardwalk, under the lights, and I remember it being so beautiful. We walked back around to where our car was parked instead of taking the boat. For some reason I didn’t get any photos of this. It was a beautiful evening. Two weeks later my husband died of a heart attack.
    So, thank you for this photo – as beautiful as it is, it reminds me of something much more personal. If you don’t mind, I’m saving this photo out so I can remember that night. Thank you!
