Location...location...location

Earlier this summer (July 5) I experienced a spectacular sunset.  With dinner on the stove I couldn't hop in my Jeep and drive off to the place I go to photograph such events.  I was bummed because it was the most jaw-dropping sunset ever, but most of it was blocked by the trees in the canyon behind our home.

Turns out someone else in my fair city was taking photos at the same exact time I was...but they had a much better view.  Hope they don't mind my linking to their photo.

My shot

Wow!

A different shot taken by someone else <click me>

It's rather interesting to find that someone with a different perspective has taken the very same photograph at the very same time as my own.  Side by side the two pics can't be more than a couple of seconds apart.  Same scene and yet so very different.

You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last - you create what you will."

I love that you showed both angles...both are incredibly beautiful in their own way.

I applaud the fact that you found the accompanying shot, first and foremost, but I think they are equally beautiful, if I may say so.

There are people who seek out gurus, who travel to Africa or climb the tops of mountains, all in an effort to find out who they are.   Just one glimpse of your photo...I know exactly who I am and where I need to be...... I am child of God and  need to be right here, where  there is a view of the setting sun!
Fabulous Indeed!    Marc :)

What a beautiful evening. Reminds me of the Walter de la Mere poem that begins
'Calm was the evening as if asleep,
But sickled on high with brooding storm.'
