    Re: Photo Assignment: Gallery of sunrises and sunsets

    Time to post another picture from my time onboard the "Helgøy", sunset in Malangen, the island seen is called Hekkinga.



    And some pictures from Harstad, shot a few days ago

      #636/1 is just beautiful. What a pleasure can it be to have such a working place!

        Yes indeed. These are all wonderful, but #636/1 is totally outstanding. Congratulations, Kristian

              No rigs, only derricks and leg sections being assembled for installation on rigs at Keppel yards.

              Here is a rig forest:

                Sunset over Singapore Strait last night:






                Since it is Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow I'll throw in the moon:

                Also known as Lantern Festival, or Mooncake Festival, since both things are associated with this festival.

                  Going back to #639 the light on the water is beautiful, first the single small patch, then the deveoped "path". The first one could almost be a moon shot were it not for the colour, it is so soft and hazy with the cloud starting to cross the sun.
                  I do like your rig forest at #641, it's almost an abstract picture, isn't it? Then in contrast more of your shot silk sunsets, lovely.
                  Ombugge, tell us about the Lantern Festival.

                    Basically it is a Harvest, or Thanksgiving celebration, but with roots back to early days in China, some 4000 years ago or more.

                    Here is a very brief explanation and background for the Mid-autumn Festival, which is celebrated during the 8th month of the year by the Chinese calender: http://www.chinesefortunecalendar.com/midfallstory.htm

                    I haven't had time to go to Chinatown this year, but I did post some pictures of the decorations there last year. (This is Singapore thread)

                              I like the composition of that last one, Ombugge. The colouring of the sky, the dark masses of the palms against the three tall skeletal whatever-they-are and the strips of reflective water seem to fit so well together.

                              In glaring contrast, this was the view from the study window back in June:


                              and this one was last night, incredibly brilliant:


                              Note, neither were "enhanced".
