On the Rocks

It's Sunday and this is a sunset, I've just quit calling it Sunset Sunday, but I'm still going to try to post a sunset on most Sundays.

The First

Click on photo to view enlarged.
I've been MIA.  It's been a crazy busy summer and almost two weeks ago I got a new Canon 6D.  I've been an Olympus user for several years but wanted to go full frame for some time now and since Olympus doesn't make one I decided to go either to Nikon or Canon and debated back and forth for a while and finally decided to go Canon.  One big deciding factor was all the problems Nikon had with the D600 and how they mishandled it.

I've spent the last two weeks learning and practicing and so far I'm loving it.  I still have a lot to learn about this particular camera so I can take full advantage of all the features and I look forward to getting back in the groove on the blog.

I took this photo this past Monday about 65 miles from my home while at a 3 day family reunion with my wife and most of our children and grandchildren.  I wish it had been all of them.

Idaho Rest


Click on photo to view enlarged.
 
On our way home from California/Oregon trip and stopped at the first rest stop in Idaho. Decided to snap a couple photos of the sunset. 10 minutes later as we are headed east on the Interstate I look in my mirror and see what may have been the most gorgeous orange and pink sunset I can remember. Too late by then as there were not exits or cool foregrounds available so you and I have to settle for this one. My heart breaks a little each time I look at it, thinking about the one that got away.

Woodley Island Marina

Taken at the Woodley Island Marina near Eureka, CA while on our recent trip. Went looking for a light house and found it, but it was such a disappointment that I didn't even take a shot of it.

Giant Sequoia Tree

 Click on photo to view enlarged.

We just got back from spending a week with our son and his family and it was my wife's and my first trip to see the giant redwood or sequoia trees in California.  We also spent some time on the left coast in northern California and Southern Oregon.  I found the texture of this particular tree to be totally unique in all the thousands of humongous trees we saw.  This tree is about 12 feet in diameter and probably about 200 feet tall.

More to come.

Albion Basin Flowers

I think it's been too long since I had some fun with texturing and playing around with a photo so here's one of some Indian Paint Brush I combined with an old log and a few other things and put together today.

Candlestick Sunset

Click on photo to view enlarged.
The formation in the upper left of this photo is called the Candlestick and is one of my favorite places for a sunset shot when I get to Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah.  I've posted a few from this area in the past, but I think this is my personal favorite.

We'd love to have you join in with your own sunset or sunrise photo for Sunset Sunday.  It doesn't matter when you took the photo so join us every week.  If you have one to share post a link  to it in your comment, (click here to learn how) or just tell us it's there and we'll click on your name to find it.

OBTW, if you do post something for Sunset Sunday it would put a big smile on my face if you added a link to this blog in your post. Thanks!
