It Never Gets Old

Well okay, it sort of does.
Kinda.
I mean if you've seen one, you've seen them all.
Right?



















Wrong!
I suppose though, if you live here long enough, all my life in my case, you start to take them sunsets for granted.
Ho hum.
I spent all summer two years ago just taking pictures of sunsets and lemme tell you, they never get boring.
Each one is different, sort of, and everyday, when I get the chance, I look to the afternoon sky to try and guess what the sunset will look like.
Today, I said, it's going to be good.
Well, it was okay.
I mean it was nice and all, but as far as sunsets go, I've seen better.
I did sit for a while and admire.
Then I saw the pics:





























Everyday, it's like the solar system gives you a present.
Here, it says, but don't unwrap it now.
Wait for it.
Oh yeah baby.
I've said before that I like twilight more than the fireworks and tonight was really nice.
I was using my wide angle and all of these shots were under exposed.
I forgot I was shooting at f4.
I had to boost the exposures a bit but I swear I didn't mess with the color.
Where did those blues come from?
I walked along the as it got dark and boy I wished I was back in another life with a cold beverage in my hand.
Preferably one with an umbrella in it.
Sometimes I'm out walking around and I don't pay any attention to the setting sun; I know it's there.
I mean it's getting dark right?
From know on though, I'll be doing more than just giving it a glance over my shoulder.
I'll tip my hat in thanks, thanks for the gift that keeps on giving.
It happens everyday, but it never gets old.
