Now that the days are getting shorter and we’ve had some days without extreme cloud cover and drizzly rain, I am able to watch some beautiful sunsets before heading off to sleep. Knowing that winter is quickly approaching, I am trying to savor each glorious ‘show’ when I can. I hope they are still around when the sun starts going down at 8 p.m. so the boys can see them first hand as well.
I attempted to capture them with the digital camera, but have to admit that it barely does justice to the full spectrum of colors I am able to see. Playing with the settings helped to see some of the colors rather than washing them out.
Here’s the sunset I shot just last night looking out my living room windows. The first one was without any zoom. The second zooms out towards the middle range of trees.
