I always experience a rush of excitement when I watch the setting sun splash the water line with color. Whatever else I have on my mind doesn't matter; the power of nature is as invigorating as it is cleansing. For reasons I cant fully describe, a sunset instills in me a sense of purpose and hopea renewal of sortsan appreciation of a simple joy. Watch Hill and its Little Narragansett Bay offer breath taking sunset views and miles of gorgeous beaches, said Turner.
Watch Hill is a quaint Rhode Island village that bustles with summer tourism, so this sunset illustrates a peaceful ending to a long summer day, stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. Fortunately, Rhode Island boasts 400 miles of coastline, so sunrises and sunsets like this are witnessed along our harbors, inlets, and beaches throughout the year.
The I Luv RI photography contest is sponsored by Washington Trust in conjunction with Rhode Island Monthly. Photographers may enter the contest by sending their favorite Rhode Island photo to: www.rimonthly.com/ILUVRI, or by visiting www.iluvri.com.
