Summer time Sunsets

Cape Kiwanda, Pacific City, Oregon, originally uploaded by dibec.

How do we tell what time of year it is on the beach? Well, in our, still tiny beach town of Pacific City, we look to see where the sun sets. North of Haystack rock in the Summer, South in the Winter. If you want a shot like this in your portfolio, make your plans to visit us at The Craftsman B&B.

Sunset or sundown, is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the western horizon as a result of Earth's rotation. The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun's disk disappears below the horizon. Near to the horizon, atmospheric refraction causes the ray path of light from the Sun to be distorted to such an extent that geometrically the Sun's disk is already about one diameter below the horizon when sunset is observed.
