I had an opportunity to take some more photos of Outer Cape Cod while visiting family for Christmas. I visited some new beaches and some old ones, and witnessed a beautiful sunset. Read on for more photos!
Nothing more festive than a Christmas tree!

The late afternoon sun at Rock Harbor.
The striations in the sand looked almost Death Valley like.
I brought my telephoto lens just for fun. This flock of seagulls was probably a quarter mile away, at least!
The sun was starting to set as we approached First Encounter Beach in Eastham.
Once again, the telephoto lens makes for unique perspectives.
A vibrant blue light started to take up parts of the sky.
A glorious sunset was underway as we arrived at Thumpertown Beach in Eastham. Wowza!
A boat off in the distance distorted by heat waves.
Up close and personal with the tide!
The houses looked clumped together when photographed from a distance.
Last Christmas, Coast Guard Beach was covered with a fresh coat of snow. This year, it was a different scene.
Finally, there's the Atlantic Ocean! Not the best place to capture a sunset (unless you're seeing it from Europe, of course), but a great place to go afterwards!
The Penniman House at Fort Hill has recently received a fresh coat of paint.
