It just occurred to me that your (UK) sunrises and sunsets are gold. I'm saying this because of a photo I took many years ago. This was taken from the Tower Bridge circa 1990.

Red at night, sailor's delight.
Red in the morning, sailor's warning.
A dusty atmosphere makes for good sunsets & sunrises.

Here in Darwin, particularly in the dry season, it's often extremely dusty- Tourists in their thousands (and a few locals) head to the various prime viewing spots to watch the sun set over the harbour.

Although if you're in the right place at the right time during the build-up, you can get some truly incredible sunsets if there is a storm about to come through from the East.

Rules:

Post only original photos taken by you. One exception is if someone takes a photo OF you, you can post it here.

Not too big. In inches I wouldn't go much bigger than 8" x 10", but that's just
a general guideline, not a hard and fast rule. In pixels that would be 576 x 720.
(You all know they should be 72dpi, right?)

This group/thread is not for items for sale. Please post your for-sale items elsewhere.

Let's keep the photos rated PG, please. :-)

I like the way the hills turned out. There's also something ethereal and surreal in the juxtaposition of the power lines over the mountains, and I like the way one of the transmission towers leads your eye down into the city.

The last set of hills in the background is actually Santa Catalina Island, about 60 miles from where I was standing on Angeles Crest Highway.
I also like the sunlight reflection off the Pacific Ocean.

Since we've been posting only rarely, I've decided to go into my reserves. This photo was taken in 1973, iirc. It's the Concho River in San Angelo, Texas. I wish it were a little more in focus. I enjoyed the reflection caused by how the branch just touched the water.

The photos are lovely, people! :) Thank you for sharing them with us.

There's one I keep wanting to take, but the last time I was in the actual vicinity of it, I didn't have anything with me to record the image on, other than my brain,
which is I expect, why I'm here talking about it now. And the last too many times I did have a device on me to do so with, I stupidly wasn't able to manage the
walk to it. Still, hopefully one day soon :) In the meantime, I'll just continue to enjoy the fruits of everyone else's labours.

uh-oh edit: I'm back to having to scroll far right to proof-read myself, so I will do some line-downs so others don't have to

Here's three from recent days:

Now, what sort of trouble can I cause now???


Nearly Full Moon, just as the sun was setting, hence the blue sky and front-lit clouds

The last two shots are hand-held at 450mm!
