You Capture: Sunsets and Sunrises

The theme for this week's You Capture challenge is sunsets and sunrises.

To which I said, "Yeeeessss!"

I kinda like sunsets. If you've been coming to my blog for any length of time, you know I take shots of sunsets whether Beth tells us to or not. ;)

There is the subtle, glowing kind...






The light, feathery kind...


And, my favorite, the dramatic kind, where you take shot after shot because the sky changes so quickly...
















As a bonus, here is a guest photographer's work...my son Robert (age 12) took this shot of a gloriously colorful sunrise.




To see what everyone else captured this week, head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry for more You Capture participants.

And join in the photography fun next week! New participants are always welcome!

I'm a sucker for a beautiful sky too. I have way too many pictures of the sky, but I'm always looking to try and capture the beauty from 3D into the 2D perspective. You (and your son) did a great job.

Just beautiful.
I think your son is a better photographer than me. Which doesn't say much.
I think both you and your son got amazing captures - wonderful pictures.
There, that's better. :)

Somehow I knew this would be your favorite topic to photograph, maybe the next one will be silly kids who play dress up or children and their books :!
