February Finale - Posted on 02/19/2008
Just another country sunset, taken last evening. The day had been a mixed bag of weather as a cold front was passing through - one moment I had sunshine and white puffy clouds, then a snow squall would blow in and I'd have dark skies and almost white-out conditions. A few moments later, it would clear again. The cycle was timed perfectly - a squall had moved through just before the sun was going down, allowing me to capture this colorful end to the day.

I want to thank everyone for visiting and for your wonderful comments. I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything - life got very busy for me the past few weeks, and I haven't had much time to spend with the camera. I think things are quieting down a bit so that I can get back to a more normal routine. Hope everyone has a great week! -- Kim

    Great sky. I like the way the lines in the sky lead to the brightest spot.

    Lovely sunset. Ours was lovely also, but, I didn't get out to take a photo. Glad you did.

    Gorgeous sky but the black land at the bottom really sets it off.

    I love the colors in this sky; although, the foreground needs to have some detail in the shadows.

    Silver lined clouds. This came out nice. Love the colors and especially the details of that one tree to the right showing so clearly against the fading light.

    Just another country sunset indeed - we have them too and I find there are never two that are the same. Just beautiful and the colors are fabulous.

    A very dramatic sunset, imagine water instead of fields and Wagner's "Flying Dutchman" ...
