Prairie Sunset

I must say we get many beautiful sunsets and sunrises here on the prairie. The mountains are very close and help to create some very interesting cloud formations, this night was one of them. I love all the warm colours and patterns here. I hope it brings memories of warm summer nights.

Today I've been with TN 1 year and I must say I just love this photography site. I've learned so much over the last year, and hope to learn much more this coming year.

Hi Janice,
A very evocative sky here!
I like so much your up POV to catch all this beautiful information.
The mix of warm colours with the blues at the top makes it a very contrasting picture.
Congratulations for the post and for the year here. Hope to many more pics from you.
My best regards,

This is truely MAGNIFICIENT.
Love it, neighbour.
Best regards,

Hi Janice,
this sunset is sure a nice thing to see on a day like this one,what with the rain and snow and cold.The thing I like about this photo and most sun set/rise photos is no two are ever the the same just like the people who take the shots.Congrats on your first year uploading to TN.Your photo has an almost oil painting like quality to it and that helps convey a mellow overall look.The colours are rich and the texture has good variety to it.TFS and all the best in your second year with TN. Bob

Hi Janice,
Thanks for sharing this beautiful Alberta sunset with us, the colors and cloud formations are wonderful. It's nice to know the sun is still there, lol.

Congrats Jan on your milestone! And what a nice multicoloured sky you used to signal this event! I especially like the "streak" that runs on the right half! Almost like a sun pillar! Looking forward to seeing your contributions in the next year! Tfs, Jay

Great colors in this sky.
Well done and bye bye.

Hi Janice,
A late congratulations to you one year anniversary. You surely showed us some of the beauty of the prairie and the rest of your neck of the woods. It helped me decide to visit that part of Canada. The different colors and the layers of clouds make for a very beautiful sunset. One I still hope to see for myself.

Hi Janice.
Very nice excercise with the colour, structure and focus. Harmony of atmosphere, colours, lightning. Well doen. tfs. Stev

Bonjour Janice

Les sourires demain

Congratulations on your anniversary. This is a lovely, colorful shot for the commemoration. The range of colors is beautiful. Thank you for all you critiques and photo and travel tips. I hope we are all still here for the second anniversary.

Hi Janice real nice colours of sunset, good capture of a wonderfull sky.Alain

Hallo Janice
This is an idyllic scene and most pleasant view to admire. The arrangement of colours in the sky is amazing and most relaxing to look at. The sky creates a tranquil mood, and looking at it makes you feel as if you are looking at a explosion of warmth and comfort in the sky. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.
