I have been sad because of the lack of pretty sunrises and sunsets lately.  I don’t know why we’re not getting them.  Sunrises and sunsets are two of my favorite things in general and two of my favorite things to photograph.  I have been very disappointed in recent months.

This photo is a different kind of sunset than I’m used to capturing and posting but I think it’s beautiful none the less.  Ralph and I were on our way to dinner at a local restaurant recently when we both noticed how pretty this was. He stopped the car for me to take the photo.  There was no color.  The sky had been very overcast most of the day so it was all dark gray with the white of the fading sunlight.

White Sunset

I captured it over a swampy and wooded area near our town.  The trees with their Fall foliage add some color.  I still prefer the more colorful sunsets, but I thought that this one had a certain beauty.

Don’t forget to stop by West Metro Mommy Reads to see all of the other photographs being shared today!

Happy Saturday!

  3. Sunsets always have a certain beauty, they always remind me of the passage of time, and to appreciate my days.

  6. I love to take photos of sunrises and sunsets too. The one you featured today is lovely. I like the light shining through the branches and leaves — different from the dramatic reds, golds, and oranges and a subtle kind of beauty.
    Here are my Saturday Snapshots.

  7. I agree. It does have an austere beauty.
