Canton, IN Sunsets

 

 

 


I am not going to apologize for not participating in Sky Watch Friday or Odd Shot Monday last week because I had such an exciting Labor Day weekend as you have probably read. If not, please do go back and read of my excitement of seeing Ricky Nelson's twin sons, Gunner and Matthew, in concert.

I admit I was a little bit disappointed I did not get as great or as golden a sunset when we went to Indiana this trip as I did last time. But we can't always be that lucky, can we? These first two here were taken from outside the front porch of Don's nephew Shawn's new home in Canton, IN. There was a tree beside us and a cornfield across from where I stood in the front yard. Now the sun was a near perfect orange ball in the sky which was what I was aiming. It just is not as orange as in the camera's lense as it was in reality. The last one was taken back on the farm back in Salem, walking towards the house from the driveway. I loved the muted colors of it. Not all sunsets have to be brilliant colors. This was the best I could do this go round. I was lucky enough to get a really cool cloud for next week's Sky Watch Friday, but I am not giving that one away. You'll have to come back next week to see... I just didn't want to put them all in one basket so to speak. I'll save some for next time. Yesterday I got some really golden sunsets back home in Columbus. So I am good for Sky Watches for awhile until I take something even better... and hopefull I will.

If you would like to participate in the new Sky Watch Friday, please go to the following....

Glad you liked my latest post, Becky.

Great use of the tree as a silhouette in these pictures of yours.

Welcome back to a more sensible pace after the whirlwind days recently. I hope Don is doing well. Oh, and I liked this set of Sky Watch photos. :-)

You know you could put your autograph photo on the side bar just like the one of you there now. . .

I particularly liked the first photo with the muted tones. I have one up too although I am not officially doing sky watch anymore.

Hiya Becky, thanks so much for your kind comment over on my blog. I am happy to say my ear ache seems to have gone, though I am taking extra care in this damp, wet, foggy weather!

Have a great weekend.

Those are beautiful skywatches! I am glad you had a great weekend! Time away from the blog can be a beautiful thing, and we're always here for you!

And here I thought these were just average sunsets... Wow! David, your comment made my day. It brought a smile to my face that I did it right. Thanks so much for the good feedback. Thanks, Carver. It is good to be back. Don is ok but he got stung by bees today! Glad you liked my Sky watch photos.
Thanks so much, John & Fishing Guy.
Hi Perbs! Ya know I had thought about doing that with the autograph photo. Thanks for re-enforcing the idea.I'll try that. I'll check your's out in a few... Mrs. Nesbitt, I am glad your ear is better. Thanks so much, Sandy. I really appreciate all of you being there for me.

unsets are notoriously difficult. That is why I almost never post them.

Thank you for the nice comment

Normally I have an easy time with evening sunsets, Runee.
