Because it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Enjoy.
Ooh, that’s a moody view. Perfect!
Nice. One of the best ones I can remember on here. Have a nice night everybody.
It is stunning, but you are on deadline. Who gave you the right to stop and enjoy the sunset and post it for us? :<)
Yeah, what Angie Boyter said :-)
Yeah, I concur with the other guys. Extra nice.
Wow, absolutely stunning colours. I tentatively assume you must have used a bit of saturation to get that kind of variation – but perhaps not!
Beautiful. Fantastic color. Does your deadline allow you to explain the gear you used to take the photo?
What a beautifully dramatic denouement to your day!
That’s a great one
It’s an awesome snapshot! :-) I’d want it as a poster!
The best evar!
Wow. Thank you.
Beautimus John! Love, Mom
Good heavens, did you deliberately try to make it look like Captain America’s costume? Because that is just amazing.
Well, there’s a high quality sunset right there.
(How do you get any work done with that to look at?)
And the red eye of Mortar looked out over the land..
Reblogged this on Collectables and commented:
Just because it’s been so rainy and cold here.
This is absolutely gorgeous… thanks for sharing, these always make me smile. :o)
When did Earth move to a red dwarf?
Damn, I knew I shouldn’t have opened that attachment…
Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you!
One of my favorites! thanks!
Wow. That is one patriotic sunset.
Sunsets would often make me sad, because they represent an ending. This one made me feel wonderful. Thanks for sharing it!
I wonder if you are using the same sun we are using?
Ah, the Eye of Sauron looks so pretty in the Autumn-time.
A red dawn. Point me to the orcs and I’ll get going.
Great pic. I think its soundtrack should be something like Wagner’s ‘Ride of the Valkyries’. I could see Valkyries in that kind of setting choosing the slain following a battle..
Or Riders in the Sky.
@Gulliver – that pic looks like what I was thinking..
Where is this? I’m planning on posting your picture to reddit.com/r/skyporn. A beautiful picture, and I commend you for that one kind sir, and if you don’t know about what reddit or skyporn is, then when you get a little free time check the website out (reddit.com). Just wander about bit. Must sees include: reddit.com/r/funny, reddit.com/r/pics, reddit.com/r/birdswitharms, reddit.com/r/nottheonion, and any of the SFW (which stands for safe for work (meaning no porn or blood or gore (because there is porn and gore if you stray to the darker sides of reddit (/r/gonewild, /r/spacedicks (DO NOT GO TO /R/SPACEDICKS UNLESS YOU WISH TO THROW UP (Holy shite this is crazy I think I might create a black hole if I use another parentheses (*black hole*))))))) porn network, which includes skyporn. Which brings me back to the question I asked at the beginning. Where is this picture taken?
This comment took a while, and I totally just gave you a guide to reddit so you have to go now. Now. NOW.
Seriously, this is the best yet.
Can we have in desktop quality pls?
Ooooo! Ooooo! I can top that one, and from the same day too:
Is that HDR?
