The Day is Done

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 30 January 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The day is done,
The sun has set,
Yet light still tints the sky;

My heart stands still
In reverence,
For God is passing by.

- Ruth Alla Wager

Nice photo, Steven. I love the lone seagull.

@Michael Skorulski: It was a touch I wanted to add, and in all other photos the seagull was never in focus. It was good to capture it.

While waiting for the page to load the telephone rang, so I got a really lovely suprise when I came back. This is a wonderful sunset and the seagull adds a lovely touch. I love the poem too.

Beautiful sunset, the bird is positioned just right!

@Steven: Thanks, Steven! It took a few shots to get one in focus. The birds tend to do this "last dance" as the sun sets and capturing a flock just didn't "do it."

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

When I first saw this photo I felt like I was at home, and all but am at home here, since Holmes Beach is on Anna Maria Island, and I live onshore in Bradenton. Do you vacation here often?

@Viewfinder: Last April was my first time to the Holmes Beach area. What was nice about the area is that it has not become overcommercialized........yet. I could go again.
