Sunset in Tokyo
This exudes a serene beauty bordering on the sublime.

Oregon coast-Newport, Oregon, Marys Peak, west of Corvallis, OR, near Frenchglen, OR and from Sweet Checks Winery near Eugene, Oregon. These have all been fun to see!

I especially like the last one. Beautiful sky. Nicely done Sir.

+1...very lovely! :)

Ken and all the others have inspired me to also try out a few of my sunsets. Here you go........

I'm loving what I've seen so far. You have to be prepared, or very quick when the opportunity presents itself.

Cheers Brian

Nice, especially the second one. What lens did you use?

Hi, Canon 24-105 at 24mm on a 5D3.
Cheers Brian

Excellent compression on the shot to get that great "big sun"!

Thank you lion rock, rpt, Dustin and Click. I appreciate the kind comments.
I am on crutches following an argument with a horse - so am relying on good photo opportunities coming to me at the moment... this one was taken from my back door.

Argh, damn horses ! The more you have to do with them the more you realise why the internal combustion engine was invented.

Anyway a crutch makes for a good camera support  ;)

Trust you'll be back in action soon.

On my way back from my regular visit to the Scottish Highlands, I stopped off in the Glencoe area, this time in Kinlochleven. I finally saw the first spectacular sunset of the autumn. I've always found that sunsets seem to be much more impressive in the autumn (fall) for some reason.

I started off wide, with the 24mm f/1.4 MkII on the 5D MkIII.

After waiting for the right light for half an hour and stopping to photograph something in the opposite direction, with the colours getting more intense by the minute, I finally decided "job done" and packed everythying away. I started walking back to the hotel, but looked around, only to find the colours had got even stronger. I was torn, as the filters take a long time to sort out, plus I had the 70-200 attached. In the end I couldn't resist, so just put the 70-200 on the tripod without any filters and this was the result.

As I was finally walking back to the hotel, I passed a family literally running in the opposite direction, only to hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire".

Those are both fabulous shots.  The first one has a great lead in with the little stream, and the compression of the color layers on the second one is equally fabulous!
