I was on my way home and there was a fair bit of storm activity about and it created this (what in real life was a) magnificent and eerie shot. To me it looked more like the begining of an alien invasion than a sunset, but maybe that's just my imagination.

Anyway, here it is in all its slightly blurry and nowhere near complimentary glory.

I also think so.

I love shooting sunsets and you never know when you will be in the right place at the right time. I took this while just hanging out one of my son and laws family at their cottage on Lake Ontario. I shot it with my Canon 100-400 racked full out and with a 1.4 tele extender and it's hand held but I was at least sitting in a lawn chair using my arms with elbows braced on the chair's arm pieces, sort of a home made bipod. Pretty cool that it worked out as it is tack sharp.

I like the fishing boat rushing to get back to Sotus bay before dark.

The trick of a good sunset-over-the-water shot is that you need a bunch of other stuff to look at. Really, you need a photo that would be a good photo even without the sunset. Like that one.

Too true. At a minimum, you need a couple trees in there. But a lighthouse and some boats is even better.

Here's a link to 27 Beautiful Sunset Pictures, and I'd stack up chrisinhouston's picture against any or all of them.

Thanks xoxoxoBruce!

As always it is about being in the right place at the right time! And it helps to have a decent camera and a longer lens that will accentuate and increase the size of the sun. I think a tripod is also a must as you can shoot at a lower ISO without worrying about blurs from a shaky camera.

Here is one from my Aruba trip a few years ago. Needless to say I have many more from this series but I like the juxtaposition of the sun behind the wind surfer.

Short story behind this one...My partner and I met in a chat room on MSN 11 years ago. He flew to Florida to meet me on Valentines Day, 2003. I took him out to dinner to a nice restaurant on the beach. Fast forward 10 years and I took him back to that same restaurant for our 10 year anniversary. This photo was taken there. After dinner, we went for a walk along the boardwalk where he dropped to one knee and proposed. I said yes.

I know "congratulations" is ... tacky or has some other negative vibe to it, but what the heck. Congratulations, and I hope you have many happy years to come!
