Default Dusk shots with tripod

Having some more fun using a stable tripod! Tried a few sunset/dusk shots recently. All from near the home park, all long exposures.

Here are some rather pink evenings at the lake - looking down towards the dam.

Same location but a different evening. Isn't it amazing how much the light changes, and how much it affects the mood of the scene!

Tried another spot along the lake, behind one of our park's camping areas, for a different view of late autumn dusk...

Looking forward to watching more changes of light & pattern as the season progresses!

Hope you enjoyed these evening views, and that you will share your comments & critique!

the 4th and 7th are my favourites and the last 2 could maybe use a slight tiny rotate to level the horizon - but all beautiful shots the colours are gorgeous

The delicate pinks in the first group are nice, but I like the brighter colors and their symmetrical reflections in the second group better. If we saw that brown cloud in the third group in California, there would be a call out for an immediate air attack on that fire!

Great shots Mole. I'm especially taken with the star shot. How long was the shutter open?

Wow! Are you ever good at sunset shots! Those are just awesome! Funny thing - I didn't immediately think "fire" when I saw the cloud in the third set, but Penolta is right, I've often seen smoke look that color. I prefer the pastel colors of the first set, but only just barely. I don't have a favorite, they are all so beautiful.
