Series: Take A Moment and Enjoy A Sunset


Time for a sunset!  I photographed this one from the back of our campground in South Dakota.

First, the eastern clouds lit up behind me, creating a gorgeous, dramatic sky.

As the eastern sky slowly darkened, the western sky started to blaze.

And then the sun set.

I took this last photo walking back to our campsite.  It turned out pretty cool, so I’ll add it as a bonus.

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.”

  1. Beautiful! I can tell you’re not on the east coast anymore! Thanks for sharing a different ‘take’ on a sunset!

  2. Nice, Donna! That first image with cloud swirls is very neat! I like your composition with the narrow strip of land and then the sky–I feel the bigness of where you are.

    Your bonus shot is pretty cool, too, with those layers of color!

    • Thank you, Ellen! The sky sure does seem bigger here, not sure why, lol. With us being further north, the sky lightens up earlier in the morning and stays lit longer in the evening. I can’t adjust, lol, I’m too tired to make either very well!
