A lot of the time photography for me is about catching that moment.

Today that moment was at 20:38.

Sunset as seen from our deck

Was sitting with my back to this display, watching television, when my son said:"look at that dad."

Almost missed it.

Panorama made with Microsoft ICE, three pictures handheld.

Cheers,

Harm

What a beautiful sunset. Here in Scotland the sun sets about 4pm so I am told.Haven't seen the sun in a while.

Great capture.

That's one of the nicest sunsets I've seen for a while - nice detail in the clouds too

And thanks for doing so, Harm.

Very nice shot(s) of something we are all so familiar with. It's remarkably rare for us to have a camera ready to hand; and it's also rare for that "moment" to occur at a convenient time ... The essential perversity of life, the Universe and everything, I guess ... .

Sun is setting here (Connecticut, New England, USA) at about 4:15 pm..

Much to busy a time of day for me to shoot a sunset...

Yours is absolutely "Perfect"...Great shot!

And here is the soundtrack to that photo
In reply to harmbr, 9 months ago

Look and listen:

OK, maybe you are not into rock music and OK, it is not really one song, but at least the title of the album is spot on.  I've always enjoyed that live performance and it came immediately to my mind upon seeing your image.

That is a beautiful capture.  It is true that photography is in part being at the right place at the right time, especially for the images we remember most.

I love pictures of sunsets and this is a great one!!!

Here is another shot I really love although it wasn't as well received

Here is the shot  and the translated comment:

http://www.dpgr.gr/usergalleries/displayimage.php?pos=-37938

"Although the view of the sky is spectacular the picture has no subject. I would've prefered to have either the sky isolated or find a cental subject under this spectacular sky. Otherwise I'd use this picture of the sky in other digital creations"

One man's spectacular sky immortalized is another man's subjectless picture. Go figure

Thank you all, it's always good to share

@ Roel, your link took me back to some good times. ( the days when we were young and foolish, now middle aged and still foolish )

@ Dimitri: technically the commenter maybe right, but you definitely captured the moment, and with that we have to accept what is present at that time. Nice picture.

@ Dave: from memory I recall that the sun does shine in Scotland, but I was there during the summer some 19 years ago. Beautiful photogenic country. (and I like the Scottish humor)
