Spring Sunset

On a beautiful evening on May 9 of this year,I went to one of my favourite sunset spots,Lake Minniwasta. It was one of those evenings where all is well. It was calm, no bugs yet and a lovely view of the setting sun. I was there all by myself, but not for very long.

Can you see the speck in the middle of the picture? Is it aliens, or spies,what can this be? 

Actually I knew very well what it was as the operator, my son,Steve was standing beside me.
He had come to fly his drone over the lake and get a sunset view that way.


 The drone has a unique look when in flight. I liked how it looked against the sunset.


Bringing it in closer so that the drone is the only object in the picture.


Here is what Steve got from the drone.It gives a whole new perspective.



Yes,the sunset was beautiful.I was very happy that I had taken the time to go to the lake that evening.


When I turned around,I saw the full,or at least almost full moon in the eastern sky.

Closing Thought:
The wonders of the universe compel us to worship our wonderful God.

  1. The picture the drone took is gorgeous! That is my favorite. What a difference, I wonder why? I also like the closeup of the drone, with it's red lights and the pale peach sky as a background. Beautiful moon shot!!

  6. Thanks for sharing the beautiful sunset with us. Thanks, too, for sharing the photo Steve got with his drone I have wondered about the quality of the photos that could be taken with a drone; obviously the quality is very, very good.

  17. interesting ... curious ... when did you decide to buy a drone? i see them often. i guess they are great for folks who do wish to get close up views. i wish they were more quiet though. enjoy your shots. i love the sun views. happy weekend!! ( ;

  18. a few weeks ago Bob and I stood and looked at a drone very similar to this one, he wants one but can't justify it because it is a toy... this is super cool, your view of it and the sun and the drones eye view. awesome pics from both of you.. that sunset is magnificent... thanks for your prayers and for lifting me up on FB while I waited for surgery to end

  19. WOW.... Taking pictures with a drone is the best way EVER to get the very best pictures possible.... I'm SO impressed... When we stand on the ground --we always have obstructions in the way (such as telephone poles, etc.).... That third picture from the bottom that Steve took from the drone is truly awesome.... WOW WOW WOW....

    Hugs,
    Betsy
