Photo: Sunset Over UW Memorial Union

Real Estate Agent with The Stark Company Realtors, Madison WI 53123-94

Sunsets are something one never ceases to enjoy. So many variations and multitudes of colors! Sometimes the colors are truly surprising and not typical of what you would explain to someone who had never seen a sunset.  A favorite place in Madison  for superb sunset viewing is the UW Memorial Union Terrace,  the heart and soul of UW, as the banners proclaim around this popular hang-out, certainly not exclusive to students and professors, by far. No colors were digitally enhanced for this photo, which I took on a Saturday evening in late July.  A dramatic surreal hue shrouded the sky that night, making all pay attention.  I just wanted to share this sight.sunet at union; middleton wisconsin area realtors, middleton wi realtors, middleton wi real estate, middleton wisconsin buyer agent; middleton homes for sale, uw memorial union, madison wi area realtors, lake mendota

Isn't it amazing the colors and atmosphere that a camera can capture when the person behind the lens knows where to point it and what angle, etc. to use...  You did a wonderful job of capturing this sunset over UW.  Thanks for sharing it with  us.

Love, love this picture.  What a moment in time to capture and one your will have forever.  Wisconsin is a beautiful state.  I visited Shell Lake when I was very young with my good friends who have a family compound there.  Don't know where you are in relationship to Shell Lake and Rice Lake, but the whole state is awesome!

Melanie-thank so much!  It just may be time to visit us here again-we are quite a distance from Rice Lake but you are right, it is a beautiful state!

Mel-I appreciate your critique!  That sunset was just amazing. I love ones with subtle colors too but this one made you feel as if you were visiting another planet or something-it changed the atmosphere so much! These were flags by the area where you can take out boats if you are a Hoofer-a fun and funky "yacht club" if there ever was one!
