Winter Sunset

Posted by Picasa

I took this photo last Thursday shortly before 6 p.m., looking southwest past the Sibley Elementary School playground. The fiery golden pink color and the streaky cloud wisps across the darkening sky were compelling, but there was so little light that I had trouble holding my camera still enough to avoid completely blurring the shot; this was the only usable shot of the several I took.

Two words: tri pod

Beautiful photo. Even without oceans and mountains, we live in a pretty place.

Jim - Indeed - but hard to have a tripod handy for those spur-of-the-moment opportunities! Thanks...

Thanks, Alan - it was a lovely sight and I'm glad I was able to get a shot of it.
