Sky Watch Friday: An Unplanned Shot!



I was returning from my usual wildlife observation spot. It had been partly to mostly cloudy all evening. As I reached an excellent vantage point, the setting sun broke through and I took advantage of the opportunity. The blazing colors were there for but a brief moment!

Canon 40D : 70-200mm F2.8 at 200mm

Pretty! You caught the sun right before it hid itself behind the trees. Beautiful.

Beautiful. It is always amazing that the colors last for such a short few moments when they are soooo dramatic. Nice capture!! :)

Your timing is magnificent. What a stunning photo. I am convinced someone has swiped Connecticut's sun and hidden it somewhere. If you find it down in PA, would you let me know? I've never seen anything quite like this....

Wow, you were at the right place at the right time. How many of our best photos are a result of serendipity?

The BW version of your last Sky Watch could be the moon rising!
