Siesta Key Sunsets

Siesta Key Sunsets

Siesta Key Sunsets are spectacular.  We often enjoy going for long walks on the beach of Siesta Key and having Siesta Key on the west coast of Florida gives us breathtaking water sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.  Every time we are walking on the beach of Siesta Key you see rows and rows of people taking sunset pictures with their iphones, droids, small cameras, and very expensive large cameras on tri-pods. Siesta Key beach at sunset has become a very popular site for taking family pictures and for sunset weddings. 

Enjoy some of the latest pictures that I have taken of sunsets on Siesta Key.
