Sunset 17/09/17


A golden sun
Reflects off the water,
Warms my face
On this Spring day

It was a lovely warm day today. The weather was lovely all weekend actually and I thought I’d go down to the lake to catch the sunset and mark the end of the weekend.

I took this while I was down there, just as the sun was starting to go down over the hills. I’m pleased with how the photo came out. The sun was lovely and warm and the colours were beautiful. I think it captured the scene pretty well overall.

Definitely a nice way to end the day.

Easter Sunset

Another Easter
Passes quickly
As the sun sets
And the birds sing

Happy Easter to everyone celebrating today. I hope you’re having a nice day wherever you are in the world.

I spent my Sunday having a fairly quiet day at home before wandering down to the lake in the early evening, partly to walk off some chocolate (yum!) but also because it was a lovely, warm day and I thought it might be a beautiful sunset too.

It was! Just as I got down to the lake the sky seemed to explode with colour and different shades of pink, blue, purple and yellow stretched across the horizon. It was gorgeous and only lasted for about fifteen minutes before the sun disappeared but it was one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve seen in a long time.

I managed to snap a few shots. This one was my favourite as I thought it captured the colours and the sky perfectly. Definitely a nice way to end the weekend.

Still Water, Purple Sky

Still Water, Purple Sky

A warm Spring breeze
Caresses my face;
I think of you
And remember

It was a lovely day today and I went for a walk along the Belmont lakefront in the evening to see if I could catch the sunset. Unfortunately it clouded over a bit but the light was beautiful and very soft, which was great for photos.

I’m particularly happy with how this one turned out. The sky had turned a lovely shade of pale purple and the reflection in the water was beautiful and it captured the colours and the light very well.

I used a tripod to take the photo as it needed a slow shutter speed, something I don’t use as often as I probably should due to its weight. The tripod makes a big difference when I do have it though so I’ll have try to bring it with me more often – I wouldn’t have got this without it.
