Sunset Photography – My Favorite Spot Is…

Sunset Photography – My Favorite Spot Is…

by Linda Deaton | 11/11/15

My goal this summer was to see as many Ocean City Cool Sunsets and Sunrises as I could. Why?

No two are the same,  watching the sun go down on another day means I lived to witness it, and most likely, capture it on camera. The colors change day-to-day, season to season.  Living near the coast gives great opportunities to watch the sunset over water, which is one of the most amazing things to experience, I highly recommend it…and more than once!

But my absolute favorite place to watch the sun go down is around OCMD’s Northside Park’s Pier, also known as the Wetlands Walkway. Those who know me know that is no surprise.  There are so many photo opportunities and spots at the pier and near the pier you can glance through bushes for the right view and camera angle, too. Next to being on the pier when the sun is blocked or just dipping below the gazebo for a nice glow, standing off to the side of the pier where they launch the kayaks and SUP’s gives a fantastic view with the pier, water and shadows of people…ahh, makes me smile just writing about it.

Where is Northside Park?

When I post pictures of Northside Park, many people ask, “Where’s that?” or “How do I find that?” Northside Park is located on the north end of town at 125th St, Bayside. (I actually turn at the Holiday Inn at 127th St. [Map]) If you have time to spare, or you want a break from the sand, it is a must see.

Why Visit Northside Park?

In addition to the best sunset spot (in my opinion), there is a playground, walking trails, ball fields, outdoor fitness equipment, a library, and events throughout the year.  Fireworks, Sundaes in the Park, and home to Ocean City’s Parks and Recreation.

My Favorite Spot for Sunset Photography

So if you see a lady lying on the ground or pier with her camera, it is probably just me capturing another Ocean City Cool Sunset!!! See you there!!!!
