    Re: Photo Assignment: Gallery of sunrises and sunsets

    That brilliant flame-orange sky a while back was very unusual, I like it, and then in contrast is the more delicate colouring of the last one. I love the silhouette of the tree against the soft, brownish pink and the way the light gleams here and there on the cars and the building at the left. Lovely images, Paul.

      Thank you Ivy! I was actually the official wedding photographer, but the allure of this had me stepping outside every so often to take some of the sun setting.
      The groom thought I was bonkers, but it's surprising how many simply don't see this at all.

        It's almost as if the sun is making a "victory" "V" sign in the sky... maybe ordered by the bride or the groom perhaps?

          I didn't think about that, although I think the bride & groom were oblivious to much of anything about this time! LOL

              There's something magical and haunting about that last one - truck notwithstanding. (Psst - don't tell Thijs I said that!)

                You didn't like the abandoned truck??

                BINGO!!! It is gone, thanks to modern facilities, even without scumming to Photoshopping.

                  I agree, the world has shrunk drastically in my lifetime. (Especially with the invent of the internet.

                    No, no, no, you've ruined the picture. It needs that sweep of road in the foreground. (truck notwithstanding ).

                    If that's your neighbour's jungle in the later pictures, it's still doing well.

                        Now, how did I know that you'd come back with a janihudi type complaint? Typical.

                          While out and about last year I had the opportunity by the river to photograph this 220+ year old former Toll House as the sun was going down.

                            I do like the mix of shadow and reality of twigs and leaves on that right wall, and the sun has given an overall tone to the scene which is delightful, warm and serene.

                              It was quite a serene moment Ivy, the sun bathing the old Toll House in beautiful golden tones was quite magical. And then I realised I was supposed to be somewhere else, oops! LOL

                                Actually, I took a very similar type of photo for one of my 366 days back in December: http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...6783#post76783
