2 more pictures and a note above ! :)

I planned to choose a mushroom image for my Picture of the Day, as I'd gone out this morning and gotten pictures of a bunch of different mushrooms. However, as the day was coming to an end, I looked outside and once again was overcome by an amazing sunset!

Then came the argument with myself:
"Oh, it's such a pretty sunset! I should take a picture!"
"No, I've got plenty of sunset pictures!"
"But it's so pinky-red and gorgeous!"
"People are going to get sick of my sunsets!"
"But this one is different!"
"Oh alright...I'd better hurry or I'll miss it!!"


Once again, I somehow managed to capture the most brilliant colors with my first picture, and each one after was less striking. The next picture I'm sharing this evening is the same sunset pointing to the south, showing dramatic clouds with a splash of color. It was taken a couple of minutes later... look at how the colors have faded! Still pretty, but it's not the same eye-popping color palette.

I've got one mushroom picture to share along with the other sunset image...wow, I'm really starting to pile up the mushroom images and I can't catch up with all the processing! Well, hopefully I'll be able to get them all done so you can see them as time permits! (Now is the time to start laughing...because I have some really neat mushroom pictures that I haven't gotten to...and they're from last spring!! Too many pictures, not enough time! :D)

Thomas Kinkade (January 19, 1958 – April 6, 2012) was an American painter of popular realistic, bucolic, and idyllic subjects. He is notable for the mass marketing of his work as printed reproductions and other licensed products via The Thomas Kinkade Company. He characterized himself as "Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light," a phrase he protected through trademark but one originally attributed to the English master J.M.W. Turner (1775–1851). It is estimated that 1 in every 20 American homes owns a copy of one of his paintings. Wikipedia: Thomas Kinkade

Funny how often that happens. The first, sometimes snatched, shot is the best. Maybe there's a moral there!
A beautiful sunset captured so well here, Janet. The colour is so fiery - hope it didn't lead to bad weather!
Enjoy your day.

There's no right answer with sunsets, I've decided. Some just go on getting better, others fade so fast it's hard to believe. At least you caught this at its best: great shot.

Oh I take pictures of anything and everything - it doesn't even have to stand and pose to get photographed. That's the joy of this digital age isn't it, cos you can take loads and loads of photos and it doesn't cost you anything - well apart from the SDHC cards. I never throw any away neither, and must get another large pot to hold them all in. Don't ever NOT take photos, who cares what others think - I for one love sunsets and would never get tired of looking at them. This one is particularly gorgeous

overlapping color layers from clouds at different altitudes create a nice abstract effect--gorgeous photo!

Saw an interesting art exhibit in Houston, where the corpse of Ronald McDonald was painted into a series of Thomas Kincaid prints--floating face down in an idyllic stream, stabbed in the chest in a pristine snow drift; &c. Social commentary, I guess.

Until Scout comes along, I guess we'll just have to look at Explore ourselves. Could be worse.
