For those of us on the left coast, the sun sets over the ocean. Watching the sun instead rise over the ocean just feels wrong. Fortunately, the humidity gave the scene some color.
This is day six of a week of nature photography. For this shot, I went back to the archives when we visited Myrtle Beach in 2007.

Great photo! Myrtle beach is one of the premier golfing destinations in the U.S. Too bad when we were on golfing vacations there that I didn’t pay attention to the sunrises.
Thanks, Darlene! Sunrises are easier to miss than sunsets — you have to get up early to see them.
I was amazed at the humidity in the South. Grew up hearing, “but it’s a dry heat” yet had nothing to compare it to. Wowzers!
Interesting comment about dry heat. Having experienced both, I have discovered for myself that I can handle 15 degrees warmer with dry heat than I can with that temp and humidity. For reasons I don’t understand the humidity really takes the energy out of me. Seems should be the other way — but what do I know about such things?
I think it’s because humidity prevents or at least greatly slows evaporative cooling. When we got out of the pool or ocean at Myrtle Beach, we didn’t feel the usual cooler until dry. Wet towels didn’t dry unless in the sun. It just seemed wrong… ;-)
