I can’t deny the beauty of flowers and even a black-topped bike path looks delightful in the setting sun.

These are for Cee’s (former) Which Way Challenge (I just went over there and found out she is taking a break from this challenge.)  However, she is still doing her Flower of the Day!  🙂

I know I said no more sunsets, but I just couldn’t help myself!

These are some shots of the sunset in my neighborhood.  I think I am finished with sunsets and sunrises; not that I have mastered them.  Far from it!  I just need a ND filter and a good spot to capture anything better than what I can get among suburban obstacles like houses, tree lines, power lines, etc., neither of which I have at the moment.

I am not sure what I am going to photograph in the meantime.  I have a few more images to post here before I run out of unpublished ones.  I would really love to do more portraits, but the opportunity hasn’t presented itself lately.  I suppose I could rework some old images.  I seem to be stuck.  Any suggestions?

It’s amazing how quickly the sun sets, or maybe just how fast time goes by when I am out walking and taking pictures.  We went to a neighborhood trail last night and walked east which gave me a chance to turn back and take these shots of the setting sun backlighting the tree line.

What seemed like ten short minutes later, when we returned along the same path, the sun had disappeared.

The gnat clusters (I don’t know what else to call them!) were out in full force.  If you look close, you can see them in the sunlight below.  They were all along our walking path, so I felt like I had to keep my head down a lot.

All in all, it was a nice after-dinner outing.  My daughter rode her bike; I got some decent shots (more to come), and my husband kept us both company.

There are so many elements to this that I didn’t know what to title it. There’s the church steeple, the power lines, the lamp post…all perfect silhouettes backed by a beautiful sunset winter sky.

Here’s one from tonight right before it got totally dark over the lake water.
