Sunset



Last night I went to the riverfront.  The sun was setting over downtown Hartford and casting reflections of the skyline on the Connecticut River.  This photo is straight from the camera, with no editing.

If you like photos with reflections, please visit James' blog, Weekend Reflections. This post is also linked to Skywatch Friday.

Yesterday I was asked why so many cities have a train station called Union Station.  Google and I looked into that question.  Union Station is one in which many different railroad lines share a single terminal.  You can read about that here.

Wow! That is gorgeous!!!
Did you take this with your big camera? I've never been able to get good shots with my big brother, what's the secret? :)

Sue said...

That is one perfect shot, Jack.

Jack, wonderful sunset color being reflected in the water. Great work.

This looks like the type of sunsets that we have in Phoenix, except we don't have a river to capture reflections.

Sharon said...

What a great sunset. It's all about the clouds!

That's so funny that you looked up the name Union Station. I did the same thing. Blogging opens all kinds of educational doors.

Wow! I'm SO pleased you took that walk Jack ....stunning sunset capture.

Kay said...

That's truly breathtaking - not only the perfect colors of a warm sunset, but the shimmering reflections are bell ringers. I also like the standing figure on the near shore. Wow! Great shot!!

Bob Crowe said...

Straight out of the camera? A terrifying idea. But, unlike my habits, you did it right the first time. Beautiful work.

Randy said...

Great colors and skyline.

Kate said...

Isn't it grand when you can catch a scene like this without any photoshop or other such nonsense. Nature in the raw, so to speak!
