Daily Post Photography Challenge: Evanescent Sunsets

This week’s photo challenge is evanescent.  Whenever I pick up my camera it reminds me of the evanescent nature of all things, but especially sunsets.  You have to take a picture quick or it will fade away and you will miss the opportunity.


I used to struggle with taking pictures of sunsets, not really knowing where to focus and how to get the colors to show.  By the time I was ready, it was already getting dark and the picture opportunity would quickly fade.


Now, I just concentrate on getting the picture.  Sometimes I am lucky and other times, not so much.  I will sometimes focus on the ocean (if it is there) or just the sky.  I am happy when I can capture the beauty of the sunset, but I realize that nothing can replace seeing it in person.

    I really love sunsets over the water – they are beautiful. I find taking as many frames as I can and sort through all of the images to find one that is good, or amazing. You just never know. Great photos. Have a wonderful week ahead. Peace.


    1. Thank you. It takes a lot of shots to find just one that I am happy with. We only get to take these when we visit California, but I love to take sunset photos!

    Oh my! Your photographs are simply magnificent. I’m jealous. ☺ Even more so that you get to see these sunsets. And thank you so much for including me on your list. I’m so honored. It means a lot. Thank you. Anne (A Woman’s Life and Thoughts, in case I appear as from my other blog)

    1. Really loved your photos. I’ve only gotten to see the sunsets near the ocean when we visit California. Where we live, you often can’t see it beyond the trees and houses.

        Thank you so much! It’s a pity about your sunset where you live. Perhaps one day you’ll come to Africa to visit and you can capture the African sunset. Hugs. 🙂

  4. Gorgeous sunsets! The last one took my breath away, and the first one with the clouds seemingly on fire is beautiful.
