Sunset Silhouettes

Hi, guys!

A few weeks ago, I was fishing by our pond when I noticed how pretty the setting sun looked as it reflected off the water. I decided it might be funΒ to photograph the pond at sunset. The following day, I returned with my camera and tripod to take some pictures. I was down there for about 2 hours….. I may have gotten slightly carried away. Only slightly. XD

Isn’t the sunlight on the water so pretty?

Silhouettes are a lot of fun! I find that raising your shutter speed and stepping back a little creates a nice silhouette. πŸ˜€

Fascinating reflections….

The view from the pond. ❀ Pole barn, corrals, a grain silo, and majestic oak trees.

Isn’t the reflection of the clouds in the water so cool?

❀

On the other side of the pond, there’s a very pretty view of our road and a forest of pines. πŸ™‚

For this picture and the next two, I was inspired by this image taken by Hayley @ Flourishing by Restful Falls. Isn’t it a neat idea? πŸ™‚

This one almost looks like a painting!

Once I was done by the pond, I took a few photos of the sunset. πŸ™‚

I had a lot of fun experimenting with sunset photography. πŸ˜€ Which picture was your favorite?

Have an amazing week!
