Ghosts of November Past

The best sunrises and sunsets always seem to happen in the eleventh month.

  4. I could get lost in these photos. Completely. Utterly. Profoundly. LOST.

    When I think about it, do I really need to be found? Nope. Think I'll just stay right here, hang out and breathe these in.

  7. All, all are breathtaking, but #2 is my absolute favourite. It looks like a bit of heaven.

    How much time do you add to your commutes to allow for photography? :)

  8. Thank you, everyone! We had a dramatic November, as far as the sky was concerned!

    Sue, it takes me two hours to ride to work when I have daylight and two and a half hours to ride home. In the dark, it takes longer, and I do try to give myself an extra half hour just in case. Because I can't tell when I leave my home in the dark if the sky is going to turn explosive red!!! And I don't want to miss it if it does!

  9. It's amazing to see what photos you've made by being out at the magical hours. You show me that Mother Nature provides the material for the most spectacular art!

    Isn't it funny how hard it is to predict whether a sunrise or sunset will be amazing or not, until just before it. It really motivates me to "be there", just in case! I can tell that you feel the same way.

    I especially love the one that looks like a flower hanging down from above, backlit by an amazing sky.
