Another Rural Sunset

Another Rural Sunset

One of the benefits of living in and around the rural counties are the many opportunities to see wonderful sunrises and sunsets. This can be a challenge for city residents with all of the buildings...

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!
