Chasing a SUNSET

I was driving home from the store a little bit ago when I realized it was going to be an epic sunset tonight. Unfortunately I only had my crappy galaxy s5 handy which takes basically the worst pictures ever. I snapped a few pictures with it only to confirm that I was right, the pictures were terrible (blurry).
So I raced home, grabbed my NIKON DSLR and ran down the street on foot to the river where there was a clearing in the brush. I managed to make it just in time, I snapped a few pictures just before dusk and they turned out absolutely amazing. I was scared that the picture wasn't going to do the moment justice, but as you can see I was wrong. It is truly stunning. So much so I had to come share it with all of you on steemit. Hope you enjoy this sunset even half as much as I did!

I don't know what it is, but there is truly something amazing about a beautiful sunset like this. As the colors splash across the sky for that brief period of time you almost forget about everything wrong in the world and only see its beauty. It is a powerful moment that fades as fast as the sunset does, so it's nice when you get a chance to catch a good one on camera.

Hope you enjoyed the photos

Peace, Love and all that hippie shit

I can't tell you how many times I've had to run down the street with my Canon camera to catch those rare, breathtaking sunsets.

Awesome shots. I love how the sky transitions from deep blue/purple to fiery orange.

Nice shots! Good call on ditching the s5 to go get a real camera.


Yeah, im so happy I made the switch. I still cant believe i took these pictures! Everytime i look at them i am mesmorized. The water almost looks like its on fire.

Great that you can still see deep beyond the setting sun^^ Nice post. It looks like you've been on Steemit a while and have a nice camera.


Thanks! I actually got my camera about the same time as i joined steemit a few months back.. getting a little better at both each day ;)
I see ur relatively new to steemit. Welcome friend :)


Thank you. And thank you for checking out my blog. There are a lot of mysteries to me how steemit works. I will just keep posting what I like and meet some friends on the way. It can't be too bad. Sometimes I go overboard. I think the point here is to try to find ways to give steem power... I registered banjo and minnowfollower. I like those bots. I don't know exactly what to do next in steemit^^


Oh, well let me help point u in the right direction then.
The first thing u want to do is sign up with the pal network discord thru @minnowbooster, that will give u a lot of help, they will upvote a post of urs once every 12 hours with a decent size upvote, usually about $0.1. I resteemed an article with exactly how to do all of that about 3 weeks ago if u look thru my feed. (Written by rodeo 670)
Next u will want to follow and check out @nairadaddy, he is all about helping out new minnows. He does contests and helps to show people the ropes here on steemit. He is a wonderful person and is extremely helpful and uplifting.
Then if u really want some good help i heard that @minnowuniversity is great, but i have never checked it out to be honest.
Hope this helps a little and dont be afraid to ask if u need anymore help.. steemit is a wonderful platform with amazing people on it. So dont let ut scare u off before u get a chance to really experience it. :)

The reflection on the water is epic,. Good thing you still had time to grab your camera!


I agree! :) It almost looks like the water is on fire.

Good post! I like the warmth of the image, greetings, go through our blog

So beautiful scenery is this that melts our heart.

What a splash of red colour! Perfect shots worth running on foot to capture the moment! 😊


I agree.. that actually made it even much more special. Lol.

Looks like Georgia or south carolina? Where are you? Looks great. Sunset colors blend so beautifully. Missing the sunsets in Florida as I recently moved home to PA!


Midwest actually. To be honest we usually have way to much cloud coverage to even see the sunset around my area, fucking chem trails. So this was a very rare treat for us :)
