Sunsets




 I couldn't decide which one I liked the best, so I'm posting four of them.
This is the scene I came home to last evening on my way up to the cabin. Sunset (or sunrise) reflected over water has to the best, don't you think?

Here where I live, my best sunrise and sunset photos always seem to be taken in November and early December.  At first, I thought that was because the times I was out and about corresponded to the times of sunrise and sunset.  That's not it.  One major reason why these are the best is because of  the position of the sun on the horizon at sunrise and sunset.  In summer and later in winter, the sunsets and sunrises don't reflect into the pond so much because they are further south or further north.  Even that doesn't appear to be the entire story, though.  Summer sunsets and rises are often hazy with humidy and so the sky isn't as crisp as it appears this time of year.

So here's another reason to enjoy November.  It's hard to argue with a sunset like this one!!

I agree that light just before dawn and sunset is sensational at times. The way the water takes on the colorful casts adds to it.

Thanks for all your comments. Sunsets (and photos) like that don't come around every day. And this weekend the lighting was dull and flat, so I will have nothing too spectacular to post until that changes.
