Sunday sunset photos

I love to take sunrise and sunset photos, but usually I need clouds to motivate me. Without them, the scene could look like any other day, but with them…you can a unique look and feel that can’t ever be replicated.

We finally had some clouds in the sky Sunday night after around 4-5 days of complete and utter sunshine. Ick! I trekked west on Riggs and landed just on the other side of I-10, and then took some shots around the fountain just when Sun Lakes begins.

Hope you enjoy!

    I like the first one… it’s like you can almost see God in it. 🙂

    Hey Mike. Great photos. Steve, formerly of flickslists, here. I check out your blog from time to time and was interested to see that you’ve taken up photography. I just bought a refurbished Canon EOS about three weeks ago. I am planning on putting up my own website (or at least posting on Flickr) soon. Look forward to seeing more great weather shots. Take care.

    Wow, hey Steve, been a long time, hope you are doing well!

    What kind of Canon was it? Let me know if you get into it a bit more, I post on Flickr, but also on (

    It’s a lot of fun…sort of gets under your skin and keeps you coming back for more 🙂

    Jina, I agree with you by the way 🙂

    It’s a Rebel XT. What are you using? It has already started to get in my blood. I will be sure to check out your page on jpgmag.

  • Mike

    Steve, it’s a Rebel XSi.

    It’s seriously in my blood now 🙂

    great skies but i think the shots would benefit from having something in the foreground to give them depth. cheers.
