SKYWATCH--The BIG setting sun

This huge sun said 'Good night' to me when I went out the other evening to take Bibi for her walk.

See other skies at SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

P.S. Changed my banner today. I think this is the family of geese you saw here , almost all grown up.

A beautiful sight and a great capture.!

Bob Crowe said...

You nailed this one. How did you get such good color on the sun and not get it burned out? Neutral density filter, maybe?

Beautiful.

Linnea W said...

That really is a superb sky and shot. It reminds me of a Japanese block print for some reason! Simply beautiful!

Bibi said...

Hi, Bob and others. To take the shot, I lowered the exposure setting to I believe 2 or more, need to check. Normally I leave it around .07. That's how I got the sun not to be burned out.

Glennis said...

I do so like to see the big orange moon, it soon loses the lovely orange as it rises. Best of all to see this orange moon rise over the ocean.

Bibi said...

Hi, Glennis! Thank you, but this is the setting sun! :)

Kim said...

Simply fantastic, Bibi. What a catch! Now I've got the song "Red Rubber Ball" going through my head :-).

Liliana Holtzman said...

So beautiful!
I love the orange of the sun against the monochromatic background.
You can feel the heat of the day in the grayish steam.

Even presented with such a gorgeous sunset, not everyone could capture it as you have. I'm always impressed with your photos, but today I'm just blown away.

Thérèse said...

You could have almost tied a string to this glorious balloon...

Your banner: "Le lac des oies!" lol

byron said...

I love huge planetary suns and moons... They're so other-worldly... And congratulations on Serbia's win over Germany today (if you're a fan)!
