This title should be self-explanatory

Sunsets are nice too.

Have you ever seen the green flash?  I sure haven't, although some of
my friends in the Western Pacific with a fine view of the sunset,
make a point of watching for it every night--they haven't either.

No, I haven't.  I've seen plenty of northern lights, though.  :]

Nice sunsets, Kevin.

I have spent 57 years living near the Pacific Ocean, 30 of them
living right on water and looking at the sun sink into the sea every
single night. I have to say that I have looked and looked for this
green flash and have never seen it. Not once. I'm convinced it's a
myth.

I saw that in Texas once, but I know a photographer in California
who said he saw it all the time. I think you need to train your eye
somehow.

Green Flashes depend on the amount of humidity in the air.  It is
caused by the filtering out of all the colors of light except the
green due to the fact the air is heavily compressed at sea level, and
happens just as the sun disappears below the horizon.  Being a
sailor, I have seen it hundreds of times and living in the South
Pacific also gives me an advantage as we have days with no clouds..
Many times however, the clouds build on the horizon just as the sun
is dropping and you will not see the flash...

For sure it is not a myth, and physics will tell you that you cannot
see it if you are at higher altitudes as the air is thinner there.

Ken - it sounds like it's cool to be you.

Beautiful sunsets, Kevin. I especially like the framed sky shot.

Thank you Judy!

Hah!  I finally got back into my old hosting site.  Now I can show
you some of those pics in a form closer to what they actually look
like in my files.

Hey, here's one. It's the product of several hours of heavy Photoshopping. It's posted on my gallery page, hence the copyright. Taken from my favourite terrace hangout in Montreal.

I like both of those.

The last one looks so natural.  But I've tried a few times and I know
how those colors don't work worth flip when photographed.

Sunset at the mall. Sun ain't quite right, though.

Um, in case it isnt clear, mine was unretouched. The Desert is called the Painted Desert

Ya gotta love sunsets.

I've been fortunate to live in some places with amazing sunset views from home or nearby, especially our place in the Bay Area.

Much as I love it where we are now, being in the middle of the forest, in a swale between two higher ridges, means sunset is something that happens to a patch in the sky straight above and some slight color through the trees to the west, maybe. Better in winter, but the ridge still makes the horizon close.

Fortunately, there are some spots not too far away that offer great sunset views, but I'm only there if I make an effort to catch a sunset.

And sometimes we all just happen to be in the right place at the right time. I took this at the end of soccer practice last fall.

That is fantastic Kai, you live in Minnesota I take it....  I spent
some time back there when I worked for Sperry Univac in the Midway
District between St. Paul and Minneapolis...  Coldest place I have
ever been in my life but great people...

Sorry, Amanda. I didnt mean to imply you misunderstood, but that maybe someone coming in might get mislead that we were all showing manipulated photos, partially because of my sloppy capitalization.

Well, at first I thought "Painted Desert" meant you may have painted
it, but I didn't see any signs of it, Tom. I had never heard of the
Painted Desert before, I guess it was named that way because of its
beautiful colors?

--------

{Photography.29.24}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Tue, 09 Sep 2003 12:44:40 EDT (HTML)

Yes, millions of years of erosion, together with some geologically recent volcanic activity, have exposed many layers of different kinds of rock and sand, which under the right light conditions can be very colorful.

We visited the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert on our way across
Arizona in '95. It lived up to the billing.
