Week Eleven Contest...Sunrise, Sunset

Open subject again, for this week. However, the pictures have to be taken during sunrise or sunset (they don't, however, have to be of a sunrise or sunset, though).

The second twist is in the way of an experiment. My poor judges are having a harder and harder time, so one of them from this week came up with a (for the particular judge) very surprising suggestion: a poll.

This is how it will work...on Friday evening, ten or so will be chosen to be in the poll, and the poll will be put up. It will remain open until Saturday evening, by which time (hopefully) someone will have garnered a victory. If there is a tie, well, then I drag the ultimate arbiter into it, and she makes the decision.

Finally, last week's winner is sharondippity See Profile's photo of a lily.

The rules:

Limit one entry per person, per week.
Discussion is discouraged. (though that doesn't stop the creation of a 'companion' thread, for that purpose).
Remember that the picture will be reduced to 200 wide x140 high.

Wow it's so hard to choose. I have three good ones but I'll enter this one. Right out my windown on August 31. Sorry for the date burned into the picture. It was one of my first shots with my camera.

This is a bad scan of the original photo. I took this while stationed at Misawa AB, Japan using a Minolta X-700 camera with a sepia filter.

My wife and I, against the sunset in Punta del Este, Uruguay, in December 1999 (we weren't even engaged at the time).

Since I am on of the subjects of the picture, a clarification is in order. The shutter release was actually pressed by my mother. However, the idea, setup and framing were all mine. I guess I can at least claim co-authorship...

Details:

Scanned from a 4x6 print, taken with a Nikon N50 and a regular 35-80 Nikon lens. I actually had my mother shoot a full 24 picture cartridge, with this one emerging the winner. I don't remember the settings, but the basic ingredients are there: high shutter speed, high f stop, stunning sunset, a refreshing breeze and two people in love.

The mountain range I see out my back door. The Great Salt Lake is just on the other side of those mountains. I see sunsets like this on a regular basis.

Later!!

Man this should be easy.... but SO MANY to choose from (since digital shoot Sunset almost daily)... I still think this is my favorite and most absolutely unique experienced in a continuous 10 years here (though I have seen lesser degrees of the effect), even for KW, where it is a daily celebrated occurance and ever changing. Yet even when seemingly boring, always unique in some way... even when it is a cloud or moon totally in the other direction to just another mundane cloudless red ball just falling in the water. (Which most tourists never see)... like this one a full 1/2 hour after the sun hit the water and they all split...NOOOOO!!! that's just when it likely to get REAL GOOD... then again for those of us who know better and don't even come until just before literal sunset...thanks for leaving and giving use a unobstructed view!!!

I don't know if I can do this, but I'd like to enter Bradley in this week's contest. Considering he is a member (and my husband) that should be ok, right? Anyhow this is a picture he took with me in San Diego. I don't remember the name of the beach, but I can find out if anyone is interested. Thanks

Edit: Changed it from BMP
