One More Sunset

I couldn't resist one more sunset shot. This was taken from right in front of the cabin where we stayed.

You can never get to peace and inner security without first acknowledging all of the good things in your life. If you're forever wanting and longing for more without first appreciating things the way they are, you'll stay in discord.

You contrast and you put color on a day that goes. You adorn light the night arrives. You make the colors explode like fireworks. You are the magician of colors.

Ajay from Pune, India

Who is going to believe that this is actually a shot taken by a camera? This looks like a fine painting done by spray paint. An absolute treat to the eyes, Jack. And on top of that you get superb framing.

Stephanie from Toronto, Canada

This is absolutely incredible. I can't say enough about the colours. I especially love how the sunset's reflected on the wet sand.

18 Feb 2009 2:44pm

@Stephanie: It was a holy moment, Stephanie. I felt as if I needed to take off my shoes. It seemed almost sacrilegious to photograph it. When I looked through the viewfinder, I was pulled through the lens and mystically merged with what was in front of me.

Cricket from Huntsville, United States

A view between the trees. Stunning. The reflection off of the sand is wonderful.

Amazing capture! The trees provide great framing, and the colors are just incredible! I bet it was a great sunset from start to finish! :)

Stunning colors!

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Vibrant colors, it gives a feeling of a painting. I like that the 2 trees starts above the horizon and allow the lines of the sea and foreground to cross all the picture.

18 Feb 2009 11:46pm

@akarui: Thank you; I spent some time trying to get the best framing.

DarkElf from Perth, Australia

what can one say - this is brilliant! the bands of colours over the sunset sky are beautiful and your composition, with tree and grass silhouettes creating a natural frame, is superb!
