  1. Yes. Especially seeing how I have a tooth or some other problem that has erupted this past week. I'll take my 90% and be fine with it. After all, it is not the end of the world, yet.

  3. Another productive evening out at the pond. The sky when I got there... As close as I could get to the local sunset and still have a nice lens flare... The orange and red racing in from the east... Max red... Way past any decent color but I like the design and subtle colors...
  4. Tonight was all about crepuscular rays. When I got to the pond, just as soon as I exited the car. Just threw the cam up and fired off a shot... Once I got down to the pond and got all set up for a reflection shot... Close Encounters of the Third Kind crepuscular rays... Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon rays...
  5. One of *those* nights at the pond again. Color galore. Pre sunset color... Local sunset @ 16mm... Local sunset @ 27mm... The start of the orange... The orange with a rather large over the horizon cloud shadow... The end of the orange and the beginning of the red... Ending the evening with full on gak red. Kind of slid towards pink...
  6. Back home again in Indiana, for this evening's sunset. And back at the pond for the pre-sunset... It actually looked a lot better post sunset...
  7. Spent the past week in central New York on vacation. Caught two sunsets while out there. This was the evening of the 9th... And this was the evening of the 10th...
  8. ^ I like the basketball goals. They make a great perspective.
  9. After another day of solid overcast all day, the bringing of sunset broke the clouds up. What it looked like when I got out to the pond... The beginning of the post sunset color... Last dregs of color in the sky...
  10. When I left work this evening I thought there would be no photos this evening. Solid overcast. So I went home and mowed the yard instead. As I was mowing, a clearing opened up overhead. Once I finished, I headed out to the pond just in case. Glad I did. When I got out there... Close to local sunset. Nice of the cloud deck to dim down the Sun for me. Worked almost perfect... Post sunset color was very interesting...
  11. Nothing too terribly special about the sunset this evening. Local sunset Post sunset color
  12. Tonight was basically about crepuscular rays. Hopefully you can still see the crepuscular rays in this one. I like this one because of the lensflare/starburst in combo with the rays... Just some broad faint rays on the right side edge here... Last image has zero rays in it. Just the last dregs of color for the evening...
  13. I'll try to be brief this evening. Pre-sunset... Post sunset...
  14. Rapidly changing conditions this evening. When I got to the pond... A nice cloud shadow here... Local sunset. I like the red on the horizon but the clouds at the top still being bright yellow... A quick turn around and a couple steps up to the top of the berm for the color to the east... And a horizontal shot of the same to end the evening...
  15. A perfect night out at the pond. No geese, no ducks, minimal wind, no fishermen and gals, the perfect mixture of clouds, great downstream conditions for late color. The only fly in the ointment was the fish in the pond. They were hitting everything on the surface and even jumping up in the air and splashing everywhere. Oh well. It has to be something! Stared out with a rather vivid sun-dog... These low clouds would materialize out of nowhere and disappear just the same. You had to be on your toes with them... Here is some orange... Here comes the red from the east... The effect of the added red from the high clouds...
