Dramatic Cloud Dusk At Tampa Bay – IMRAN™

…a very windy and stormy day’s sunset, but the dramatic cloud cover and the fiery colors made it beautiful…

Butterfly / Butterfly Bush - IMRAN™

Not long after I had built my blessed home on Long Island, I was at a Home Depot in the area and picked up two small butterfly bush plants. They were barely six inches tall each. I am so glad I planted them because not they are nearly twelve feet tall, reaching up to my upper deck.

In summer their aroma always makes me stop to smell the non-roses, and at the height of the season they are surrounded by Monarch and other butterflies.

This is a half crop of a 14MB original RAW file from my now 7 years old Nikon D300.

New Moon At Golden Dusk Over Golden Gate Bridge(s) Day & Night – IMRAN™

As the monumental structures bridged the cities across the bay, the moon and dusk bridged the ending day and coming night.

New Moon At Golden Dusk Over Golden Gate Bridge(s) Day & Night - IMRAN™

There are so many different vantage points and so many different lighting conditions to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. I have always only managed to catch a quick shot now and then during usually hurried short trips there for the last 26 years. This one was a particular stunning sight as the golden pink dusk settled in over the dark silhouette of the mountains and the new moon was sharply visible in the sky as bright as the headlights of drivers making their way across the bridge. As the monumental structures bridged the cities across the bay, the moon and dusk bridged the ending day and coming night.

Cloud Slices Sun As Boat Slices Sea – IMRAN™

This was just another of those stunning sunsets that make me bow my head in gratitude and amazement to God.

Cloud Slices Sun As Boat Slices Sea - IMRAN™ -- 1000+ Views 1 Day!

I am thrilled when I see light cloud patterns across the low horizon at sunset time because they make for the most stunning sunset pictures.

Either a narrow dark band that splits the sky into bands of bright yellow, dark red and orange; or these almost paintbrush like light strokes of semi-opaque cloud that the sun’s light is able to pass through and paint over the edges in golden and red tones.

This SOOC (straight out of camera) Nikon D300 image was labeled with my name in Photoshop and straightened 0.4 degrees in iPhoto. I did not tweak any color or shade, not even to make the boat slicing through the water more visible.

This was just another of those stunning sunsets that make me bow my head in gratitude and amazement to God.

Take Sun, Clouds, Bird And Boat. Just Add Water. – IMRAN™

I mutter my eternal thanks to God.

Take Sun, Clouds, Bird And Boat. Just Add Water. - IMRAN™

Take a setting sun even on a cloudy and darkening day which is grudgingly coming to an end.

Add some layers of clouds meandering about their short-lived hours of existence, as a bird flies by to nest for the night.

Mix in a boat with sunset worshippers caught in silhouette, as I watch from my blessed home, and you get another stunning magical moment, another memory, another blessing to lower my head in gratitude for, as I mutter my eternal thanks to God.
