Default As the sun sets...

Roaming and shooting in the garden of my friend, I remembered the dusty August late afternoons of the past, when mamas always called at the best time of the game!

(because the longer sides of the following images are 1200 pix, you might need to slide the page so as to avoid inferior composition!!)






Could they be distant blue mountains of the childhood looking nearer now, as Aten blessing every bit of the landscape with many a tiny hand...





Everything may have been spoken under the sun, which calls for a redefinition at the table with the viol, violet and the wine after it has set...




Hope you've enjoyed : )
Cheers!

Bahadir

Doesn't matter where you're from...it's really not all that different...

Nice pics!

Nice! I hope you enjoyed your day in the sunshine, and watching the sun set with a fine glass of wine.

Thank you for the insightful response, the Hun. Actually the life is so general in many aspects, as Tolstoy put it in the introduction of Anna Karenina: "Happy families are all alike, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." ....So I toast for peace of mind

Glad you also enjoyed : ) Nobody was there to call me at the best time of the game with my camera

Happy to hear your kind comment on the pictures. #1 and #2 are hdr to convey more of the tranquilty and serenity. Otherwise, my camera would be dazzled against the sun : )

Having just observed your great looking hdr series in C&T forum, I am so glad to read your liking about the ones above. The direct sun as an active agent in the frame required more dynamic range, so I had to shoot 5 frames with 2 stops spacing for one image.

Thank you Caryl. In fact, having arrived there, first, I felt somewhat frustrated as I saw the hazy atmosphere hindering crisp views of the hills. But then decided to turn it to my advantage waiting for the later hours of the afternoon when the lowered sun started to play in the game : )

So pleased to read your kind remark, Mandy. As for that last one; I remember preventing my friend who had left the goblet there at hand from taking it away for the sake of the spontaneous composition : ))
