SUNRISE / SUNSET PHOTO THREAD

Recommended Posts

Seems like one of the things we enjoy about being on the road and out of doors, is watching the sunrise and set. I'll bet it is the same with a lot of folks. We try to capture the wonderful moment on film, from time to time, and bet that others do too. Lets see some of those great sunrise / sunset photos from your travels !

Jug Fishing Sunset Lake Greeson, Arkansas 2006. A front was coming out of the North West that evening and the line of clouds caused the sun's rays to fan out beautifly. The storm scattered the jugs all over the place, but we had a good catch.

The engine in "HARM'S WEIGH" is idling and Butcherknife is telling me "Hey ! Let's get in gear ! "

Just a few brief seconds later I shot this video, and the light had just totally changed.

By now Butcherknife is saying, "alright now, enough already, let's go get them fish ! " :oops:

Do I have to keep these limited to photos I have taken while camping? I have quite a few that I have taken at home that I may post if I get the time.

Good one, andrew, where was it taken ?

 

It was taken on the road, on the way home from Hackberry. I am not sure if it was on Route 66 or on I40, but somewhere there.

 

I went through some of my other sunset pics and posted a few them

 

The rest of these are from our backyard at home. I still haven't gotten one that is "the one" for the mural on the trailer. I am still trying though.

Wow Andrew, very nice sunset photos! This one was taken after Chuck and I had a perfect day, picnic at Indian Pass where about 9 dolphin were playing in the pass between the mainland and St Vincent's Island. We had a great time riding on the beach and me just showing him my neck of the woods from Cape San Blas, FL to Eastpoint, FL. On the way home, I noticed this sunset in my rear view mirror.... pulled over at 10 mile road and got one quick shot before the mosquitos ate us alive! Enjoy. Geri

We went back to Hackberry again, although it is getting a bit warm during the day, we are going to have to either stay home and swim in the pool, bring more gas for the generator, run the AC and hide inside during the day or find another place to camp where it is cooler.

 

The nights are beautiful though!

I wonder what it would take to upgrade the Oliver to handle Martian conditions... The double paned windows are a good start. We'd probably want an airlock too...

Well, first of all I was trying to figure out the mechanics behind Tom's "remote clicking" of a camera using the awning center brace . . . secondly, I was wondering what kind of lens would make the sun on the horizon appear so tiny.

 

I guess if the picture is taken 48,678,200 miles further away from the sun than the earth that pretty much explains it. After my encounter with the Whaleys in Hohenwald, TN and watching their posts with the crafty twists of logic I should have known to be aware of their highly developed sense of humor. I'd like to think I wouldn't be caught again, but they're really, really good at it!

 

Look out Ya'll ;)

Here's a picture that I took from Mallory Square (Key West) in the fall of 2003.

 

Cheers!

Thanks, I appreciate that!

 

Sometimes you just get lucky; in this case my camera didn't quite know what to do staring straight into the sun so it picked an exposure that created some very interesting effects ... other photos taken just about the same time were quite different. I've found that one of the really neat things about digital cameras is that the film and developing are essentially free, so why not take way too many pictures and simply delete the ones that don't work out?

 

Cheers,

 

Stuart

The real interesting question...

 

What would you use for a tow vehicle on Mars???

 

*grin*

 

A Space Utility Vehicle (SUV), of course!

We overnighted at Monahans Texas, in the Sand Hills State Park, down on I-20, just East of the I-20 / I-10 split. Breakfast was behind us and as I walked outside with a cup of Coffee, to start the pre travel chores, the sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon.

We camped three nights near Campobello, Roosevelt's summer home in New Brunswick. We seemed to get up earlier and go to bed later each day as there was so much to see... whales, seals, the amazing tides of Fundy Bay, eagles, and, on our last morning, this amazing sunrise:

What a splendid way to start the day!
