You Capture: Sunset


So try as I may, I cannot for the life of me get a good sunset picture.  I tried this past week and came up with a bunch of nothing.  I did get a few pictures that I liked but they weren't really of the sunset.  The sunrises on my way to work each morning and if I could just pull over and stop traffic (and not kill hundreds of people in the process) I could get some really great shots of downtown Dallas as the sun comes up.  But I've never found a safe spot on the freeway to pull over and there's never an accident slowing down traffic to a crawl when the sunrise is really pretty. (I know tacky of me wishing for an accident on a pretty sunrise day, but what can I say).  So anyway, here are my sunset pictures and one that's not a sunset picture but it has the sun in it and I love it and wanted to share.  Want to see more gorgeous sunset pictures, check out the wonderfully talented folks over at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

The sunset through my fence. 

A close-up of the sunset through my fence.

Just a girl and her dog. So ok, this one was created by a sunset, so that should count.

And this final one. The sun and all it's glory, hidden behind a sunflower (and power lines, I could've cropped them out, but I kinda dig them).


  1. I think you did a great job!! (Even without a highway accident! ;)) I especially love the fence ones; what a cool way to capture the sun!

  2. Love the sun coming through the fence!
