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....
