These two warm glowing sunsets might provide some calm during this busy holiday season. Busy at least in the two places where the photos were taken–Australia and the United States.
East Point Reserve Park, Darwin, Australia.
Peters Canyon Regional Park, Orange, California.
This clever gull chose the best possible place to view the sunset at a cove in Laguna Beach, California.
This railroad trestle over the Connecticut River in Vermont is just a stone’s throw away from the location of my previous post. The tranquility of the afternoon with only a slight breeze stirring the water makes it hard to imagine a train rumbling through.
Clouds roll by and a slight breeze ripples the water. Otherwise, all is quiet along this stretch of the Connecticut River as it makes its way down through Vermont. In a while a train will rumble through, breaking the silence; but soon it will be gone, its whistle barely audible in the distance.
As the season changes, from the shore of Togue Pond in Maine you can see a dappling of sunlight among marsh grasses and a slight turning of leaves in the distant woods.
This deciduous plant shows off its autumn colors in the mountainous woodlands of western Virginia.
It is always nice to have something in the foreground of your photos. The pilings in the Docklands are perfect for this!
Also in the Docklands, are a marina and Webb Bridge, an artistic walking bridge across the Yarra River.
If you tire of walking, trains are going in, out, and around the city at all times. In this image taken from a bridge over the tracks at Flinders Station, some trains are moving fast enough to become mere streaks in my exposure while in others you can see the people.
