Cottage Sunset Series #4

Click the pic to enlarge

On our recent vacation at the lake, I sat on the elevated deck of the cottage and watched the sun set every evening. The beauty of the sky held me in awe from the beginning of the sunset until dark.

I watched and photographed from the same vantage point each night. It was never boring!

What a fantastic view you have at the lake … not only of the sky but its reflection in the lake. It is a very peaceful scene and I can see why you would be mesmerized by it until dark. :)

what a wonderful view!

I can't deal with dynamic view blogs either, even after choosing non-dynamic it won't let me comment
then I encountered a blog with these damn pop-up gaming ads right after 2 dynamic view blogs in a row LOL

thankfully your photo eased my annoyance :)

Gine said...

C'est très beau et toujours magique, mais la découpe des arbres au premier plan donne toute sa profondeur au paysage.

Francisca said...

I'd be riveted to each and every sunset on this lovely spot too... Gorgeous.

[Not only dynamic views are creating commenting issues... I've had trouble leaving comments on several normal sites, and others have not been able to leave one on mine. Google must be playing with the architecture.]

Riet said...

Oh so beautidul. LOve the colors.

Such a lovely view! I could easily sip in the changing colours and atmosphere for hours! Great shot!

This is a pretty spot. My daughter is getting married next year at a lake in New Hampshire that looks quite a bit like this.

Malyss said...

I would have done the same thing. Gorgeous!

stardust said...

The contrast of the light and the dark is impressive: while the sky and water remains still bright, the darkness is fallen on the ground. Aweinspiring and sooting.

Wenche said...

Gorgeous :0)
