Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #14: Autumn Sunsets

"Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better."

Henry Rollins


Autumn only has a few more weeks left to it, and I haven't seen as much of it as I had planned to. Time moves quickly this time of year, so let's all stop for a moment to enjoy one on the loveliest times of day, SUNSET. Grab your cameras and show me an AUTUMN SUNSET where you live. If you are in an area with a lot of rain and clouds and not much in the way of sunsets, that's fine, show me how it looks just as the light begins to hand things over to the night. Show me as close as possible, the closing light of day. No archives for this one, I want to see this year's AUTUMN SUNSET!

Extra Credit: Show me a silhouette in a sunset!

You have until next Sunday, at 9:00 PM Eastern time, to take your photo, post it to your blog, and submit your link here. Please remember, no hyperlinks, and it must be a link to the entry in your blog specific to this assignment. Not a general link to your blog.

autumn sunset? hmmmm we got no autumn here in Singapore but I can see beautiful sunset from my high rise apartment almost daily, as long as there's no rain. I can still play, right? let me see what I can shoot in the next few days...

Hey Carly, I know its been a while since I have participated in one of your Monday Photo Shoots, but I had some time and thought that I would go ahead and see what the theme was for the week. As it turns out, I have something that will work for you, and might actually be worth extra credit for the silhouetted mountain.

I offered an old song with a re-vamped photo but have since added two more photos and a final verse. Now I feel I can give the link.
