On the way back home from the Galveston Art-walk I stopped in the small community of Bayou Vista and just happened to be in the right place at the right time to be able to capture this image of the setting summer sun.

San Leon

Along with several other local photography enthusiast from the League City Photography Meetup Group, my wife, children and I visited the small community of San Leon, Texas in hopes of getting some sunset photos and possibly catching the full moon rising over Galveston bay. 

We started off with an early dinner at the Topwater Grill (the stuffed flounder is AMAZING!) and we talked photography and whatever else came to mind while waiting for the sun to fade and the 100+ temperatures of the sweltering south Texas summer to subside. The record setting drought that has impacted Texas for the last six months has provided us with near cloudless skies, but not today.  We instead were greeting with an overcast sky, and a much needed light rain for most of the day and continuing into the evening.  As dinner wound down the light rain stopped and the temperature dropped allowing us to enjoy the end of the day and capture some amazing photographs.
