Sky Watch Friday

(c) Misty DawnS

Ahhh yes, I'm sure if you have seen my photos before, especially my Sky Watch photos, you will remember the cemetery gate. Yep, I've become infatuated with it again. I love trying to time when I get to the gate and capture the sunset at the perfect moment in relation to the gate. The people around here have become accustomed to seeing me standing in the ditch, on my tip toes, across the road, even lying down, trying to capture exactly what I want. They just smile and wave, and even sometimes beep, and continue on their way, while they discuss with one another how photographer people from Ohio are rather strange.

Oh well, I have a blast. In fact, I may be needing some self storage just for my cemetery sunset pics ;-) If anyone calls while I'm out, Hubs just says, "She's going to the cemetery and looking for deer on her way there." :-D

Awesome contrast, the cemetery gate and the sunset. I have not seen your series of "gate" shots before -- this is a first. Thanks for sharing. I just posted my first contribution to SkyWatch. Very different than yours. Hope you will stop by and leave a link.

What an amazing sunset … and I can see why you’re fascinated with this cemetery gate. Mine's up at Sacred Ruminations this morning ... along with a bit of Haiku just because ;--)

Another beautiful sky! I love the amber color...I loved your story about your husband and his remarks to people when they call you...(lol)

Really, the cemetary gate is gorgeous and you captured it beautifully!!!

This is an absolutely incredible picture. The cloud formation and the color, and that gate is wonderful. I'd be there every good sunset if it were easy to get to. Excellent capture!

Oh my goodness, I actually feel old now. I remember the cemetery gate...

Excellent sky above it though Mist. And I love how you have the gate at such a sharp angle.
