Sunset in the mountains - taken in Saanen, Switzerland.

Sunset in the Mountains

Scrambled vapour trails reflecting the sunset at Saanen in Switzerland.

In the mountains it is easy to forget, until you get there, that the sun effectively goes down behind the mountains well before the proper sunset. A few clouds or vapour trails, and a view down the valley can produce a pretty good sunset view.

Taken in Saanen, Switzerland using a Lumix TZ100.

Here’s a sunset picture to Pin to your boards

Just a pretty sunset

Weekly Photo: Pretty Sunset

Missed most of the spectacular sunset yesterday but caught this late bit of colour in the sky.
Involved in a local function, we were inside at sunset. I was very disappointed when I saw other peoples photos the next day. At least I caught this pretty sunset!

Oia Donkeys

  Oia. Beautiful white buildings, blue seas, fantastic views. And donkeys.
Arrive at Oia by boat and you have two simple choices – ride a donkey to the top of the cliff or take on a vary steep walk up the cliff path.
Here, the donkeys are heading home as the day heads towards sunset. from 500px Oia Donkeys

Portiragne Plage Ouest Sunset on the Beach

Looking at the Portiragne Plage Ouest beach from the guingette.

A view of the beach from the guingette near sunset.

One evening on our trip to France we had an excellent tapas meal at a “guingette” on the beach at Portiragne Plage Ouest, near Beziers. The time of day was just right to catch the sunset.

All the locals referred to the restaurant as a “guingette”, translated as a “pop up restaurant”. It seems that this one, along with others we saw or visited have been there for a good few years. One way or another it was great to eat good food and drink wine right on the beach.

Chesterton Windmill

Chesterton Windmill Sunset.
We went to the windmill specifically to take photos in the sunset. As we drove there we could see the clouds coming up. Here’s what was left of the sunset by the time the sun actually went down. We did get some pretty good pictures around the windmill anyway.

A beautiful, red Dundee  Sunset

Dundee Sunset

A beautiful sunset captured originally on film in Dundee, South Africa.

An incredible sunset taken many years ago in Dundee, South Africa.
Shot this originally on transparency film, but it was on that had to be scanned.
This was one of those times when I went outside and ther it was. The picture just had to be taken.
