There are 365 days in each year and given that you will live to the ripe age of 80 years,this means you would have lived 29,200 days. If you could some how photograph the same spot each day at sunset for your entire life,you would see that no two sunsets are the same. A sunset is like a thumb print,each is unique. Now that doesn’t mean that each sunset could be called “beautiful”. After all beauty is in the eye of the observer.
Personally, for me clouds are very important. They colour the background,like wallpaper. A good picture should be layered with foreground,mid-ground and background. The foreground works best to invite the observer in to explore.

Such stunning colors!
yes,I loved the colours and the look of the clouds flowing like water Cindy.
Thanks for stopping in!
a thumb print…and yes each different and unique 🤓👌and beautiful nature Wayne…beautiful captures 🧡smiles hedy
Thank you Hedy! I’ve come to the conclusion that everything in this apparent world is unique.
I realized something this morning as I was waking up Hedy. Todays date is 2022,02/22
At 2:22/22 seconds pm take a picture of something that has two in it!
Could be two people waking along a beach holding hands, or two dogs playing but todays theme is two.
How’s that for a photographic challenge.
Great photo! ^^;
thank you Yolanda!
Yes, like a thumbprint. Many such beautiful thumbprints you have shared with us, Wayne. Thank you.
A day without sharing is like a day without a great sunset.
Always great to hear from you Lynette!
I started this morning with your thought. Nice!
Glad you enjoyed it Doug and I hope you have a great day!
Wonderful photos and excellent observations about foreground, middleground, and background. Well said. Your passion for your Eagle friend Romeo and the world you two share shines through.
Thank you Babsje,passion is the fuel for adventure!
Agreed. Also, your writings reminded me a bit of Wilson Bentley (aka “Snowflake” Bentley) who brilliantly imaged snowflakes back in his day. Like Bentley’s snowflakes, no two of your sunset skies are the same. And as I’ve oven said about my days with the Herons, no two days at the lake are the same. Never tire of capturing and sharing your sublime sunsets, Wayne!
sunsets,snowflakes and days on your lake all add up to a wonderful world to look forward to each day
Indeed, as that old tune by Satchmo (aka Louis Armstrong) says, What a Wonderful World.
love that song!
In case you don’t have it handy: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6Gpir1K3g94 (I think your photos would be even better in the montage) 😊
thanks Babsje! Great song to start the day off with!
Today is my daughter’s birthday. I have many fond memories of her singing that song when she was around 6 or 7 years old. So very very sweet in that childish voice.
how sweet! Tell her I wish her Happy Birthday!
I never thought of sunsets being so unique. The ones you catch are gorgeous.
Thank you Anne,I search for these moments.
Yes so true and agree totally with your awesome post, Wayne. Too good.
Thank you Kamal. Very happy you enjoyed it and wishing you many gorgeous sunsets in the future!
You are always welcome dear Wayne 😊😊😊
These images are awe-inspiring! I love the fact that no two sunsets are exactly the same.
and sunrises too but I’m too lazy to get out of bed for that to be honest Liz!
Truth to tell, so am I!
Sunsets are like the beach, never the same each day!
very true Noelle and If you could look at each grain of sand on a given beach you’d find each one unique as well.
Stunning gold sunset, Wayne, punctuated by a beautiful Romeo!
Thanks Terri, a great sunset is desert for the eyes!
Too true – there is so much variety in nature, if we took the time to look.
and time was a theme with this posting Emma. We only have so many days to enjoy this beautiful world!
Good to hear from you Emma!
A uniquely splendid one here – thanks, Wayne!
glad you enjoyed it Adam!
Oh thanks so much! I wish I had audio of that little voice of her singing this sweet tune. 🎶
You live in some beautiful country, Wayne. Those copper sunsets make a great backdrop, especially with a dark foreground. You are right, no two sunsets, or sunrises, are alike.
I should get a fee from the tourist association!
Glad you enjoyed it Lavinia!
Sunset is my favorite color 💜❤️🧡💛🧡❤️💜
Beautiful sunset photos Wayne – I always love the silhouettes against a swirling orange sky that always reminds me of a melting Creamsicle.
A great challenge for you Terri! Glad I could help!
No two sunsets are the same, each one is a new work of nature’s art. You capture them so well, and they make a perfect backdrop for Romeo.
thank you Jennie!
Hi Wayne Beautiful pictures 💞. Your comment about clouds is so true. On Friday it rained at the game reserve we visited and the sunset was amazing as well as the sunrise on Saturday. It dried out and the clouds passed and Saturday’s sunset was nowhere as magnificent, nor was Sunday’s sunrise.
Oh that sounds like a great trip Robbie! Did you get any sunset shots?
Very hard to figure out clouds?
Those cloud formations make me wish I was a painter- glorious!
when you consider that clouds are made of water and that snowflakes are as well,It amplifies the adage that no two are alike!
