Sunset across the river

These were taken by the Missouri River the last week of 2011.

I. Love. Sunsets.   It's safe to say that sunsets are one of my favorite subjects to photograph.  What about you...what is your favorite subject?  

Until next time...


  1. These are beautiful,you really do get fantastic sunsets in your part of the world.
    I also like to take sunset /sunrise pictures,but we do not get many because of the mists on the mountain,when I do manage to get a good one the sky is pink and orange.
    Nature would be my main topic ,birds,animals and landscapes.
    Have a good week.

  2. I too love to watch and capture colorful skies as the sun is setting.
    Your shots are stunning, Cheryl. Thanks for sharing the beauty.

  3. I'm so happy that sunsets are one of your favorite subjects... so I can enjoy them!! beautiful, beautiful shots, Cheryl. Old houses and architecture are some of my favs!! blessings to you ~ tanna

  4. Those are beautiful shots. So peaceful.
    I attempt wildlife but don't have the skills to capture what I see.

  5. Flowers. Grandkids. I wish that I could find a sunset to try to capture. We don't get them as vividly beautiful as the ones you share. That is exquisite!

  6. Beautiful! IDK if you took this last night, but I know we got up from the dinner table to look at the sunset, it was beautiful here too. We are on the bluff of the Osage River.

  7. awesome, stunning, spectacular all three of these. i don't really have a favorite, i love anything and everything from bugs to benches, sunrise to sunset, trees, rocks, on and on.

  8. Oh what beautiful pictures you got. Every time I try to take a sunset or sunrise, my camera makes it look so dark. I guess I need to learn how to work it.

    Yes, it is 'one' of my favorite subjects too.

    Since I went to school in Missouri I grew up singing this myself. I bet you did too!!
