    Re: Show Me Your Sunsets...

    The first is a shot I took while vacationing in La Porte, Ca. The sun was just setting behind a mountaintop lined with trees.

    These shots were all taken within 1/2 hour and are straight out of the camera with no PS work. Within an hour we had a thunderstorm.

    thunderstorms make the BEST sunsets. I wish I had been at our house in Maine when there was a thunderstorm, but I had gone home early for a training thing for school. My parents took some snapshots, and the color was absolutely fantastic. I'll try to find them.

    The colors on these are just strange though. Kind of makes you curious as to why they changed so much so quick. Only thing I can think of is dust ahead of the storm.

    iamfunk,
    Those are very beautiful sunset pictures, I have a question though with the one with the boat, How did you not get a sharp glare of light? Many of my pictures are ruined by the sun and I have a hard time capturing it like that? I would love to know some tips. Thanks

    Real nice. I can't think of Puerto Vallarta without the "Loveboat" theme running though my head.

    I know what you mean. Puerto Vallarta is very romantic and quite charming. Their port is usually full of cruise ships. I really love the place. The sunsets are remarkable as are the Mexican people.

    I don't know that this is a "nature shot" but it is a recent sunset.

    LOL, Paul, that was what I kind of liked about that picture. I found it very unique, hard telling what happened to it, it was in the middle of a wheat field.

    These are two of my oldies but goodies. They were taken on the southern shore of Lake Winnebago in Fond du Lac this summer.
