Sunset Shots

Right now I’m wondering if there’s anything special about a sunset shot. It’s something that has a lot of coverage at this point.

It probably depends. Getting a shot that stands out likely takes a lot more work which I think is a good thing as it’s more of a challenge, unless of course you happen to be in the right place and the right time with little, if any planning or effort, which is also a good thing.

That said, the result of capturing the sunset often remains pleasant to view as it can often result in a range of reactions. They can be pleasing, overwhelming, powerful… etc. etc. They can be a combination of things.

Here are two shots of the sunset that I took roughly two weeks ago.

There’s not anything special about these and I do think the transmission tower and power lines are problematic, though maybe that means they say something more than “I am part of the image”, but overall I do find the images pleasing.

This is my submission into the ninety-first Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Simplicity“.

Whilst the mechanisms behind what is displayed are somewhat-complex (depending on how deep into them you want to get), the scenes are simple enough.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is hosted by Patti. The next is guest-hosted by John Steiner of Journeys with Johnbo. Then it’ll be Leya.

I recommend giving the challenges a go and seeing how you interpret each theme. I also recommend checking out what other people are doing to meet the challenges.

I hope you enjoy.

    I kind of like the effect of the power structure in the second SH. It’s reality, isn’t it?!
