The final image from a 25 minute outing at Castle Rock is this one of the two benches that allow for prime seating and incredible views of the ocean from Marblehead Neck.  Most consider Castle Rock a perfect spot for watching the sunrise and these benches can’t be beat for sitting down to enjoy a cup of coffee on a Summer morning.

However, with clouds in the sky to reflect the colors of the setting sun, one can find an equally beautiful view of sunset at Castle Rock.  This image captures the full view of Castle Rock facing 180 degrees from the setting sun.  In fact, you can make out some anticrepuscular rays near the horizon and below the cloud layer that can only be seen at this angle to the setting sun.
