Have you ever seen a golden ball sinking slowly in the lap of omnipresent red sky? Ah, What a weird question to ask, right?

Don’t we all see and enjoy sunrise and sunset at any given opportunity.

All of you must have clicked hundreds of pictures of absolutely red sun while it slowly vanishes in the clouds.DSC_1044

I mean that’s the fact and I know but again that’s the beauty of the moment.

You go to same spot daily to watch and capture sunset but it will be a different experience everytime.

Compare the pictures and you will find that each single day your camera captures a different color, a different story.DSC_1109

How surprising it is ! Yesterday I went to trek with my husband. We started climbing to reach our final destination, a temple built atop a hillock. The view was splendid. Soon it was time to say good bye to the sun.

I took few pictures of the magnificent golden ball floating in the red sky. DSC_1131

When I uploaded the pictures in my computer I found them satisfactory. They were better than my last sunset shoot. Mind you I’m in learning process and don’t have a macro or other powerful lenses ideal for this kind of photography.DSC_1137

Did I feel embarrassed in front of those who were shooting like professionals with their tripods and long barrels ?

No way !  I made full use of Whatever I had ( my multi purpose lens ) and freaked out. Someone has told me that I’m picking up fast. Woohoo !

Enjoy the absolutely gorgeous sun ! DSC_1108DSC_1150

  1. Some good shots. I have been taken photographs now for about 6-7 years, but it is still more luck than judgement. In our part of the world yesterday was marked with a blue moon, and I slept through it.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. You can see the hill climb and temple pics in my yesterday’s post. I had two entries yesterday.
      Good that you had your golden oldie sleep. I’m sure your felines must have done some great work while you were sleeping. Off to them.

  2. Suggestion: Focus on the brightest highlight in your picture … the sun, or at least part of it. A white cloud. The shadows are much easier to work with than burned out highlights. Bob Mielke taught me that and he was right.

  3. Absolutely Red!
    Absolutely Good!!
    Absolutely Matches with the colors of your Header Photo!!!
    Now tell me first about the Photo of your Header, is it a click you have taken or what it really is.
    I mean.
    The jump into the sky.
    Rejoice so beautiful.
    Action fully packed.
    Makes one Admire.
    To the fullest.
    Now let me Tell one more thing.
    You are an Aspiring Photographer.
    And You are Inspiring too.

    1. How beautiful !
      Absolutely a great morale booster !
      It is a click I got on net and I did some changes to suit my blog.
      Thanks a lot for the visit. Much appreciated.

  4. I see your absence in my Blog.
    I feel the visit you could have made.
    I Look forward your presence.
    I welcome you with the warmth of Hospitality.
    I followed You and cannot ask You to Follow Me.
    I of course wait there is no other go.

  5. Hey, great photos and a great idea 🙂 I may do something similar myself in future! I live on a hill and sometimes the sunset is glorious in it’s appearance. Thanks!

  6. Oh did I tell you sunsets are my favorite ?!! These are splendid photographs, would have loved to enjoy this beautiful spectacle live ! Incredible photographs ! 🙂

  7. Great pics and I don’t worry about not having tripods and telephoto lenses 🙂 I have a tripod but haven’t used it at all ever since I bought my camera (Canon 450D) 5 years ago. My camera is no longer produced but I changed my lenses last year for better zoom. That’s about it. The rest is to learn the technicalities and practise, practise, and practise…and your photos will turn out beautiful 😉
