Skywatch Friday

As we were boating back to Fidalgo Island
through the San Juans,
we were mesmerized by
this spectacular hazy sun
setting over distant Vancouver Island...
San Juan Islands, WA
(8/2/10)

Wow! I don't they come more evocative than this--or more envy-inducing. I'm always grateful that you manage to bring the northwest down to the southwest so beautifully; this is definitely a keeper.

Yep, that sun sure looks familiar! You got it at a great time-- just when it was turning red, but when it still was bright enough to leave that gorgeous trail. Last night was my third night in a row trying to capture the REDness of it... it wasn't as easy as I thought! Think I'll take tonight off. Enjoy Anacortes, I love that town!

What an unusual color! Good shot, Linnea!

[Yes, The Great Wall is best seen in April/May or Sept/Oct, but I don't tire of it anytime, even with the heat and smog! I have a shot of me with a sweat drop at the end of a curl :-D]

Tricia said...

Your photo is fantastic! The reflection is superb! Wondering if our amazing red evening sun is due to forest fires in Canada. :(

Beautiful image, both the sky and the reflective water.. The haze sure makes for some lovely colors. Looks like a wonderful place for a kayak.
