Fall Sunset

Posted on Nov 9, 2016

This was a surprising sunset last week on a day that I did not expect any sort of light show. It turns out that the clouds parted just enough to let the light in while getting that special glow. Unfortunately I was rather far from any water or hill, unable to get a great view of a spectacular scene unfolding so rapidly and ending so briefly.



After a moment of thought – and a minute of two of running for my camera and swapping lenses – I noticed that I was soaking in the sunset from behind the bare branches and falling leaves. I decided to take advantage of that and shoot some silhouettes of the remaining leaves in a now dark environment. This is autumn, and its beauty should remind us of how much we care about our world, and to remember to do all we can to be the best stewards of the Earth we share.
