A sentimental break from travel photos as we had a most beautiful sunset yesterday and I thought I'd share it. It's flood time here now so the trees standing in the pink pearly water looked wonderful. As I was taking pictures of the setting sun two helicopters from a nearby military base entered the frame bringing in sort of techno feel to the scene. I thought I'd let them play the classic role of birds at sunset:)

Hi Marina !!
what amazes me .... it the number of photographers taking photos early in the morning or late in the afternoon....... yes I know those are the best " light " times
so you were rewarded with a spectacular view and captured some beautiful colours.
in regards to my truck ( oldie )........ what a coincidence that Gladys posted a similar scene next to mine.......... now my truck is jealous !!!!
Have a nice week end.

Hello Marina - There is an exquisite, romantic atmosphere to this shot. The colours and softness are wonderful, even the small helicopters do not detract from the stillness... they remind me of two dancing dragonflies! Lovely. Warm regards Rosemary

The flood looks like a sunset by the sea. The lavender tone and stunning sunset is further enhanced with the silhouettes of the two helis.
Thanks and kind regards.

You have lovely purple sunset colours on this one. Quite painiting like, impressionistic feeling. Those helicopters give an idea of some kind of modern day cowboys flying towards sunset.

this is really a fine sunset photo that I appreciate very much. Light and colors are fascinating but the helicopters make the image very interesting. My compliments also for the excellent composition!

Another routine sunset, but different with your clever use of helicopters, resembling birds in the photo thumbnail.
And a good color combination of purples and blues, and the last rays of the sun.
