Sunset Country

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 27 May 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Almost every brochure you find from this area boasts of the sunsets. This is a typical reason why. You've seen several sunsets on my site. Each one unique and a beauty in it's own. No two are ever the same.
It is truly amazing. All you need is a clear vista and knowing what time the sun sets. But if you want to remember it, bring your camera.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Craig@Random Ramblings from Herts, United Kingdom

Beautiful sunset! I agree, never two the same and I often go walking at around that time just to see what nature will come up with. Love the graduation of yellow to red in this.

27 May 2009 11:34am

@Craig@Random Ramblings: Thank you Craig. I find this time of day to be very peaceful. There's a hush that develops as the sun gets lower and lower. Then just after the light is gone, the silence becomes deafening.

@roentarre: Thank you very much.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

PS Thanks for the info on the White Pelicans. We did not have any here until about 2 years ago, just the Brown Pelican, who hunts the ocean and dives into the water from above- Now we see the White Pelican in the sloughs here. They are great to watch because they hunt in groups herding fish then scooping them up!

27 May 2009 1:02pm

@Tracy: Yes Tracy, that is correct. Up here we see them in groups of a hundred or more. They group with cormorants when fishing. It is a sight to see. Several hundred black and white birds driving the fish into the shallows. Then feasting frantically.

Marvelous time of day. Love the light on the clouds.

27 May 2009 4:26pm

@john4jack: Thanks Jack. I usually always look for a sunset. If the clouds look like the sun can get under them, I'm on my way to set up.

mats from Texas, United States

That's so true. There's no such thing as the same sunset. If I live to see sunsets everyday I can't complain.
This is beautiful.

28 May 2009 2:03am

@mats: Thanks Mats. Every time I go out, be it morning or evening, I never know what the colour will look llike. But each time I am content with just seeing the colour miraculously appear before my eyes.

Vinman from Essex, United Kingdom

Beautiful sunsets like this are rare here, though we do get our fair share of spectacular sunrises. If only I could get out of bed earlier at the weekend!

30 May 2009 9:45pm

@Vinman: I have the treat of either sunrises or sunsets. Just depends on what I feel like. Lately I've been addicted to Am3 insted of sunrises.

shallowregret from Kongsberg, Norway

i am so envious, around here it is bland and grey most of the time.

@shallowregret: The region I live in is named "Sunset Country". We do live up to the name for sure.
