I was working on files from previous photo trips. Now that I am retired I can go through my backup drives to post images that I did not have time to post before. This is a Sunset taken at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland a few years ago. Dramatic or interesting sunsets are quite often seen at Blackwater NWR. Some have told me that dramatic sunsets at Blackwater are because it is somewhat close to the coast. I am not sure on that, but Blackwater NWR does deliver on interesting sunrises & sunsets! Image taken with a 14-140mm lens @ 48mm on an Olympus body. I was going retouch out the aircraft contrails, but decided to leave them in.
Wonderful light show, Reed!
Thanks Steve! Blackwater NWR has Great Sunsets & Sunrises!
Chaotic clouds– Looks a kid painted it!
Yes! It did look quite Chaotic & now that you mentioned it – like a kid painted it!
I know this spot for sunset shots, Reed. Well done!!
Thanks so much Donna! I remember you used to live somewhere close to Blackwater NWR.
Yes, I lived in Cambridge for couple years. I’m now 75 miles from there. 😦 But! I now live about 10 miles from Eastern Neck NWR. My new refuge to explore in depth!
Lovely shot, Reed!
Thanks Belinda! Blackwater NWR is a Great place to photograph! Even though it is only 3 hours from where I live now, it seems hard to get the time to travel there!
