Manitoba Prairie Sunset

Getting sunset pictures means one has to be at the right spot and well before sunset.
I have a particular place from which I enjoy shooting sunsets,so on this day,that is where I was,ready and waiting.
While I wait for the sun to set,I must needs be getting pictures in that beautiful evening light.


Looking over the nearby pasture with its rolling hills,I always hope for some animal,perhaps a deer or a fox to wander through.No such luck on this evening,but the scene was still pleasing.

Walking back to my car,which was parked on the roadside,my eyes were drawn to the road heading south through this small valley.

I moved my car over to a better vantage point and just had to get another shot of the pastureland in that golden light just before sunset.


I had mys sister with me on this occasion and no,we did not see any wildlife,but off in the distance we could hear the calling of the Coyotes.It was the perfect touch to a calm evening.


 The sun finally dropped down to the horizon and cast its warm glow over the land.


I have seen more spectacular sunsets,but each one has its own beauty. As the sun dipped down below the horizon and bid the land 'goodnight' for another day,it was a peaceful end to a lovely day.



Keep looking up! I learn from the past, dream about the future and look up. There's nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day.

  7. Ruth, I left a comment and when it didn't seem to post, I hit the 'post' button 2 or 3 times and it then posted all of them! Crazy computer and Internet service! And maybe, crazy old lady trying to post a comment :)
    Anyway, as I was saying, I love all your pictures, especially the fence and green pastures!

  8. I love how beautiful it is beside that tree, the tree really makes the picture! The lush green is beautiful and peaceful. Yes, it is hard finding spots for the sunset. You cannot just go out and start snapping! Here, there are lots of trees, mountains, wires, and houses, ALL in the way! We have to have spots picked out for each season, know where it will set, and go up high with no houses or trees. Then we forget our spots. And the sun continues to move. But that is all part of the fun.

  9. What a gorgeous and peaceful place to watch the sunset... The countryside around there is just FABULOUS.....Love it when the sun turns everything a golden color.... Reminded me of our drive through the Shenandoah Valley one evening at sunset... It was breath-taking.

    Hugs,

  10. I agree with Theresa...wonderful shots for the Good Fences party! Sometimes, it doesn't look like there is going to be a pretty sunset but then all of a sudden...well, you know. Because of the heat & humidity, the skies in the evenings have been bright red. I really missed a good one last night!

  11. It looks as if you've found a perfect spot to watch and wait for the sunset. The landscape is beautiful and serene, especially in that evening light. And I don't think there has ever been such a thing as a bad sunset.

  13. I love the golden light photo! Our creek flows directly west from here and the setting sun turns it a bright silver streak.

  14. You are so right about each sunset having it's own beauty and this one is no exception. However, the 1st and 3rd photos are my favorites. I just love the green in both of those.

  15. I am in total awe!!! Beauty surrounds you, and you were kind enough to share it all with us.

  16. Gorgeous, gorgeous photos! I have not had such luck yet with sunset photos. But I heard it is bad for the camera lense if you point it directly at the sun...? SO I have been a bit hesitant with that.

  17. A green field like that brings one word to my mind - verdant! Such a beautiful spring green touched by the sun's rays.

  22. Beautiful, Ruth. And that's a good lesson, too. To be watching for the sunset instead of it catching you by surprise. Diane

  27. Nothing beats that light before sunset. Just gorgeous.

  28. That is a very lovely place to wait for the sun to go down. Your photos are lovely and have such a peaceful feel to them. I have trouble finding an uncluttered west facing spot....too many tall trees. Not complaining....I love trees...but I don't shoot a lot of sunsets any more.

  29. Every scene is just beautiful....I can only imagine the peace that is yours as you capture God's beauty!!
    Enjoy a fabulous day....

  31. Your scenery is much like ours except I rarely see a sunset due to the surrounding woods. Glad you were able to share yours.

  32. Every single shot is wonderful and it was lovely that you could share it with your sister.

  33. I like the idea of returning to one spot to shoot sunsets. I'm reminded of Monet painting haystacks in many lights.

  34. Just gorgeous, Ruth! I love that first fence shot!

  35. I have enjoyed taking sunset photos and have been awed each time by the beauty!

  36. That is a beautiful area and you captured it perfectly throughout the evening. Mornings and evenings are my favorite time of day.
