Key West Sunset

Mallory Square, Key West, Florida

Last week we returned from our first visit to Key West. Talk about a relaxing time. We timed it perfectly as we missed the winter storm that dropped up to 3 feet of snow in Connecticut. We spent four nights there before heading back to Fort Lauderdale. The first day, we had driven to Key West from Fort Lauderdale and stopped at the Key Largo Conch House that was featured on the Food Network show, Man vs. Food. Everything was great and the featured conch fritters were awesome. 

I wanted to get a few photos of the famed Key West sunset and the best place to take them is at the popular Mallory Square. When we got there, the square was packed (I can't imagine what it is like during busy season). I wasn't able to get a great spot to capture the sunset but thanks to my little Sony NEX7, I was able to shoot over the tops of people heads and the railing. This was my favorite image of the night as the sun went behind the clouds before it hit the horizon.
