Enjoy this view of the stunning Tampa Bay Florida sunset tonight at Apollo Beach.

I used the Nikon D850 video mode. Because I had to twist the zoom lens by hand in a few places you will see the video wiggle. But what gorgeous colors at this place I am blessed to live in.

Come, experience the magic with me.

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

This cruise ship was literally more than 20 miles away when I captured it

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.

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.

Falling For Fall As Sun Falls Below NY Horizon – IMRAN™

Stunning Long Island New York Beach At Home Imran Anwar

As the cold air starts to creep in from the North, the sun starts to slide to set more over the water than land on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. The moisture squeezed out of the air also makes for crisper cooler air to breathe in but also for sharper photographs. Dusk scene at my blessed home beach in NY, taken with my new WindowsPhone Lumia 1020.
