Rural Sunset

Have you ever been out and about and suddenly saw a great sunset? That's when the mad dash to find a vantage point begins and sometimes it works out while other times... well. Today's image was one of those "other times". I was driving along and saw this really nice rural sunset developing. The sun was fairly low in the sky and I knew that time was of the essence. The main problem was that I was in an area where there was no apparent high ground and no clear view of the horizon. Bummer!

I knew about a small park in the area so that would have to do, figuring that I would use the wooded area to grab some sun rays or something. I rattled off about 15 sets of brackets while changing positions. When it was all said and done, I settled for the image below.

While not quite what I had in mind, this only goes to illustrate that we should never give up on an opportunity. The old log cabin to the left helped rescue the scene and provided a little balance for the small stream on the right. Some of the other brackets had the sun still above the tree line but overall, the compositions looked a bit boring (too many trees).  By the way, there is a Gazebo off to the right that I posted some time ago.

Thanks so much for visiting!
