Good Morning All,

This is the shot I took before the sun was going to say goodbye for the day. I tried to capture the colors the silhouette of the landscape with wind mills against the emerging golden hues in the sky and above all, a freshly appearing window in the sky which lasted for only few minutes.

The scene was pleasing and I found this picture and thought it suits today's theme.

I could take only 2 pictures to capture the lively intense colors of Nature happening for a very short time.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Bom dia Paras,
It is a lovely photo and I want to tell you that you knew the format to suit a theme that would require the classic format for receiving a landscape.
Good entry for the weekly theme.

Hi Paras.

Nice positioning of the sun as it lights up the heavens above. The birds flying high reward the onlooker, the illumination above the cloud grabs the attention too. Perfect addition to the theme today Paras. Have a dry weekend.

stv ;o))

Hi Paras,
Beautiful sunset with half the glaring sphere still visible leaving such an artist's palette of colors in the sky. I like the dark clouds which are dividing this glorious natural phenomenon with a window still producing the red cast.
A considerable depth filled with interest.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras,

A nice contribution to the Friday's theme, the distance to the sun is giving depth to the composition. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

Hallo Paras,

A blazon horrizon is looking marvellous in this valued presentation. Some rays of warm light illuminating light clouds on the upper portion of frame is fantastic and birds are adding life. An impressive snapshot for the theme, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Dramatic,vibrant image Paras,& one that fits this weeks theme well. The setting sun on the low horizon with its strip of warm evening colour,balances so well with the larger dark areas of your composition.Well taken TFS

Hello Paras, a nicely balanced shot with some amazing bands of colour across the sky.
Imo there is just the right amount of land in silhouette, with the wind turbines breaking up the line of the horizon.
I like the placing of the sun in the composition too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Paras,
Fantastic layers of clouds and the warm red tones intermingled.Foreground has some detail always difficult to incorporate in these type of mages.Great shot.Enjoy the weekend.

Bonjour Paras,
Nice presentation of this sunset of the sun to say goodbye to the mountain.
dramatic sky and good contrast and light.
good presentation for the theme.
Michel bon WE.

bonjour Paras
Le seul coucher de soleil pour illustrer ce thème; c'était donc une bonne idée;
the incandescent cloud is a good decisive moment
bon week end

An excellent contribution to the portrait form landscape theme. I like the wind turbines on the horizon line with beautiful splashes of amber and orange color in the sky. The cloud pattrern in the upper portion of the image is what really makes this work as portrait composition.
Nicely Done

The break in the dark clouds is truly lovely and enhances this sunset which already very attractive. It is the break in the clouds that I find so special. TFS
