There’s something about sundown in September in Long Beach, Long Island, when summer takes its first baby steps into fall. Perhaps it’s a mix of the initial dips in temperature and humidity and cooler breezes coming in off the Atlantic that help create the more sensational sunsets there. Whatever the atmospheric goings-on, though, I try to drive with my camera to the beach town during the ninth month to capture the sun’s colorful wonders. During my outing that produced these photos, instead of walking the beach’s shoreline, I kept to the boardwalk. There, the plunging, golden sun reflected off the Brazilian hardwood and transformed pedestrians, cyclist and runners into silhouettes.
