Silver sunset

By ColleenA
Thank you to all of you for the great comments on my sunset yesterday, especially to the sunset/landscape fundi's whose words have encoiuraged me to continue with this genre of photography. A special thanks to Peter (ddolfelin) for his UA.
I decided to turn one of these sunset images into a mono...
Have a nice day, for me its lots of walking as my car broke down on Sunday and still waiting for it to be repaired at great cost (the cost of a good lens)Grin

I have uploaded the colour version as a few members wanted to see it

Much as we all love colour in sunsets, that's pretty amazing mono image - and let's not forget where photography started
and who doesn't love Ansel Adams? Stunning Colleen.

Beautiful mono image Colleen, it must have been a day for cars to go wrong the turbo went on our car pretty scary as it engulfed the whole car in black smoke had to get out quick most importantly we & the camera gear got out to safety, I do hope you can sort your car, I think ours has died SadSad

Great capture!

That is so dramatic Colleen. Such a shame about your car. Hope it isn't terminal! Cathy
This is kind of a different image from you, Colleen, and it is beautiful. Really dramatic. B&W is perfect.

How is your move coming along?
