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…

Cold Spring Weekend Sunset At Heron Pointe Home Marina – IMRAN™

…on some days, like today. I was able to enjoy a stunning Long Island south shore sunset that is comparable to the average great Tampa Bay sunset…

Double Trouble! – IMRAN™

I saw these dual storm cloud type formations seeming to emerge from the same point West-South-West of my home, seeming to want to engulf me from all sides.

FireBall Sky, Flaming Horizon, Pink Cloud Cruise - IMRAN™

This cruise ship was literally more than 20 miles away when I captured it going past where the sun was totally behind it and clouds. The Nikon D300 handheld photo at 300/450mm eq. zoom shows the magic even of “dull” sunsets over Tampa Bay, seen from my blessed home at Apollo Beach. The trees to the left are straight across from my home but a long drive to get to at a popular state park, at the edge of the peninsula there.

FowERotica: Flower Erotica – IMRAN™

The aroused engorged green probing parting pushing penetrating the tender pinkish petals opening as a purple nub yearns to be brought to ecstasy…

FowERotica: Flower Erotica - IMRAN™

This gorgeous #Florida #flowers photo was just too good not to post. Yes you do have a dirty mind 🙂  … because beautiful flowers do grow in the dirt. Yes it does look like some sort of X-rated inter-“racial” intimacy. How beautiful is that! What can be more beautiful than chocolate covering vanilla and filling it with cream? 🙂 LOL The aroused engorged green probing parting pushing penetrating the tender pinkish petals opening as a purple nub yearns to be brought to ecstasy. Hey, I don’t know what you’re thinking. I’m describing two potted plants here! OK OK, so I saw the plants and had the idea, so I did move the plants a little bit closer at the Home Depot. 🙂 Sort of like doing an intimate photo shoot in a public place. 🙂 🙂

Butterfly / Butterfly Bush – IMRAN™

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.

Pastel Tranquility – IMRAN™

Stunning pastels underscore vivid golden bursts of magic in the sky

Stunning pastels underscore vivid golden bursts of magic in the sky at dusk over my blessed home beach on Long Island, New York, in East Patchogue. The private beach is secluded and seductive as the Great South Bay’s gentle waters roll in to my feet.
