You Can't Fence Out a Sunset


You Can't Fence Out a Sunset, originally uploaded by Misty DawnS.

The first year we lived in Missouri, I was amazed at the sunsets. It seemed like every single night there was a sunset which was glorious, beautiful, and unique. I would go on daily walks each evening. I would leave at a time which would allow me to get photographs of any wildlife I may see and then would allow me to capture that evening's sunset. This photograph was taken in my yard after returning from one of my sunset walks. I wanted to capture the sunset with a sense of 'living on the farm' to it. When posting it to Flickr yesterday, I came up with the "You Can't Fence Out a Sunset" title and immediately thought it fit. Nope, that barbed wire doesn't fence out that sunset... it may give it a sense of remote security though, I dunno. ;-)

Unfortunately, during the past two years, we haven't had the sunsets like we had that first year. Hmmmm, maybe is was Missouri's way of welcoming me? O.K., maybe not. I'm hoping this year provides some more sunset opportunities. If it does, you know I'll post em for ya. :-)

I like that idea, Mist. I think you're right.:) It was welcoming you. I hope you have some truly beautiful ones this year and we'll get to see them through your eyes!

Wow! Gorgeous shot :)

Mice photo, Misty. But it begs the question...

If you can't fence "out" a sunset, can you fence one in?

Absolutely beautiful, Misty!
When I first moved to Alberta 10 years ago, I was amazed at the sunsets, which stretched all around the horizon.
We still have beautiful sunsets sometimes. When Dick and Lindy go for their evening walk, he does the same thing you did, goes early enough to see wildlife and late enough to see the sunset. On the other hand, I have been known to run out onto the street in my pyjamas to take a picture of the sunset.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photo with us.
