Sunset Colors


Now that we’re fully into the summer rainy season, it’s harder to do evening walks, and even harder to get good sunset pictures. These were taken by the Lakehurst pond. There is an Osprey nest on a cell phone tower on the other side of the road, and we heard the juvenile Osprey calling as he ate his dinner. When I saw Mom flying in and out of the nest, I snapped a few pictures, trying to show the bird in flight in silhouette against the gorgeous sunset.

Then I pointed the camera down to the sunset’s reflection in the lake. I thought the difference in the two images was striking — one is dominated by the fiery orange of the sunset, and the other is dominated by the cool blue of the lake water. I like the light angle in both.
