Photos: From Montauk to Long Beach, Long Island was treated to a glorious Sunday sunset


Long Island Sun Chasers put out the call on Facebook. And Long Islanders delivered, big time.

At the beach, next to the farm and from backyards and roads across Suffolk and Nassau, Long Island residents captured and shared hundreds of fantastic photos of Sunday afternoon’s glorious sunset on the Sun Chasers’ Facebook group page.

The heavens were ablaze with eye-popping shades of orange, pink and purple, accented by soft smoky clouds and the day’s fading blue sky. Sunday’s sunset — the first since moving up the clocks early yesterday — occurred between 4:40-4:45 p.m., depending on where you stood on Long Island.

Without further adieu, here’s a sampling of the glory witnessed by enchanted Long Islanders.

Tanner Park

Donna Pfister captured these beauts in Tanner Park in Copiague.

“Omg!!! NO FILTERS, no edits just pure joy from me to you!!! The sky just exploded in the most wonderful way! Felt it in my bones and in the way the clouds were developing,” Pfister said in her Sun Chasers post I actually giggled out loud and shed a tear or two. Witnessing a sky like this gives you so much hope and positivity. Hope many of you reading this were able to see it for yourselves.”

Sag Harbor

Asia Lee just killed it with these gems taken in Sag Harbor.

“Color my world with love,” Lee posted.
