Chasing Sunsets

The weather this summer has not been conducive for sunsets.  Many rainy evenings over the past month have masked the Sun on the horizon.  Other times, when it looked promising, haze in the atmosphere had the Sun disappearing before it set.

Finally, the rain stopped and the humidity dropped.  Walked out to the end of the Creekwalk in Syracuse, New York to photograph the sunset over Onondaga Lake. Alas, clouds on the western horizon obscured the Sun.

Sometimes the sunset is only the first act to a more colorful second as I found out on the rocky shore of Lake Ontario near Oswego, New York.

There is only a week left before this month’s assignment on Summertime is due.  Maybe I will find a sunset worthy of summer by then.

    Wow Scott, these are such vibrant images. Something exciting always happens when blue and orange come together but I seldom see such intensity in the dawn or sunset colors here.
