Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Hwy 47 Vernonia Oregon

Barn at Sunset along Hwy 47 and the Nehalem River Vernonia Oregon

 

 

Looking back through old photos, this is one that reminds me of my drive home to Fishhawk Lake along country roads in the winter seasons when the sun sets earlier and silhouettes come out around 5pm as the sun wanes. The low temperatures but clear days can offer some hues that are like visual dessert for a photographer. This is a sharp curve along The Nehalem River that makes it a challenge to stop and photograph without putting oneself in harm's way. Ah, what we go through to get a good shot!

The time of day coupled with the colors of the sky, help create a hauntingly beautiful scene, Gayle!  Nice work!

Courtney, you know you're right! This was taken on a February day at sunset. I just couldn't resist how the colors made me feel today.

Mryl, you know how certain themes will draw you over and over as a photographer? Mine are barns. I love them! AND sunsets. Been taking pictures of sunsets even as a kid when all I had was a little throw-away camera.

Lovely photo Gayle.  Amazing the colors the sky takes around that time of day.  No one sunset like another.  I stopped by knowing there will be something good for me to look at.  Thanks for sharing your collection.

Ellie, this made me feel so good: I stopped by knowing there will be something good for me to look at. What good are sharing photos if no one wants to look at them? And the wonder of nature in all of her glory is exactly what you said, that no two sunsets are alike. Every day we have a new opportunity to hone our skills! I'll bet yours are spectacular....I've got a sunny day (thankfully) to go take photos of a new listing on the lake. Can't wait!

Hi Gayle,

What a wonderful sunset photo!  I'm glad you pulled this one from your archives to share with us. 

I absolutely love sunset and sunrise photographs because it seems like we are extra lucky to be able to witness sunrises and sunsets in the first place.  (I've slept through too many sunrises and worked through too many sunsets.) 

I hope you have a great week!

p.s.  I never was able to drag myself out of bed to see the Van Gogh exhibit.  However, I did take the time to see  other parts of the museum during the normal operating hours.

I love barn photographs Gayle and we have had some winners using barns in some of our photo contests here in the Rain. The nice thing about this one with the colors is the time of day. Quite an extraordinary photograph.

Gayle, terrific shot and I'm happy that you take the time to stop and capture the moment.  All those purples are so relaxing.

Hi Gayle,

Great Barn photo and it is so large too. I love the colors and yes it does remind me of the desert with the pink and purple hues. Happy Monday. How's the pups?
