Series: Take A Moment and Enjoy A Sunset

I’m behind on my sunset series, but instead of sharing several recent ones, I’ll just share today’s, and catch the others up another time.

Because….it’s all about today.  The start and the finish.

I shot this panorama of today’s foggy sunrise over the Choptank River, where winter ducks were waking up.

Sunrise over Choptank River – January 16, 2019

 

Tonight’s sunset didn’t have a whole lot of dramatics, but I did love the wispy cloud lit up by the setting sun, as well as the streaking trail of an airplane’s.

Sunset over Cambridge Creek – January 16, 2019

 

In the sunset photo, there are gulls standing in the center on a thin layer of ice that has developed on parts of the creek from last night’s artic airblast.  With my zoom lens, I took some photos of those standing in the sunset’s reflecting light.  I am amazed the gulls are not falling through the ice!
