Hi Alls,
I took these last sunday and thought I'd share em here too

these Red colors almost did'nt happen as I just about gave up on this sunset, I was set up for a sunset down low by the river you'll see those pics later in the 7 here, I was hoping the set of trees I was lining up would pop and be on fire with color but that did'nt happen and I was about to leave grabbed my gear and started walking back to the car, but keep looking back over my shoulder, Dummy me with as many sunsets I've photographed I should have known that once the sun gets beneath those clouds that it would turn the clouds into colors but I thought it was too clouded up, soo I waited and got this pretty red Sunset.

and thats the backstory haha sorry

I love the way the water mirror reflects all the beautiful rich sunset colour Steve. I think you did pretty darn good with this set.

Hey Gabe, on the Perrsyburg side near downtown there's a place to park called riverside park, you can look at it on Goolge earth. to the left about a couple hundred feet of that parking lot there is a steep walkway down to the waterfront,thats where I took those low Landscape shots here and the red ones were infront of my car on the edge of the cliff. and Since were friends on FB don't know if you saw these next two pics on my FB perrysburg living album but I took some my First American Eagle pics. & I know you are a birder around Toledo and such I ask have you ever taken pics of a Eagle on the Maumee river? if soo was it maybe this eagle in this area or this location before. cause I wanna go back and get this bird with the proper light as these two pics here suck and were backlit cause I was setting up for a sunset.

& these pics were at 400mm at ISO 2000 on my 50D and not to sharp at all ,, soo yeah see that tree he's landing on well thats the main tree in these landscape pics above.

and why he landed in that tree was to spot this fish a 1/4 away and snag him total awesome moment for me to witness, as it was my first time seeing a Eagle in flight in person.
