Wow!  Can’t believe I forgot to check my email for the photo challenge.  That’s what happens when I get distracted by the fun of Skyping with my best friend.  🙂  The theme this week is “Horizon” and here’s my entry, two very different horizons I enjoyed recently.

    Wow the first one is amazing. It looks like there’s a tornado.

  6. Whoa, the sunset looks like something out of the Wizard of Oz. Incredible.

    I like both of these photos very much!

  8. Madhu says:

    Fab shots! I actually like the second a wee bit better 🙂

  9. I like the first the best, because of the cloud formations. They must have been grand live.

    • They were stunning, Sally. Funnily, we had a friend over a few weeks ago and he said, “I got some great shots of a sunset on my phone.” When he showed them to me, I recognized the sunset immediately. The little tornado cloud formation was the give-away. 🙂

    Wonderful shots, Janet. I really like both of them. The colors in the first are amazing and then I love the end-grain of that log with the lake (?) and island in the background. Nice composition!

    • Cathy, I appreciate your comment on the composition of the second as that was something I was striving to get. The water is San Francisco Bay. We were on our way to Muir Woods when we stopped and I saw this shot. As for the sunset, how can you go wrong when God sets up the photo op so perfectly?? 🙂

      Enjoy the weekend!

    Both are beautiful, first one is stunning.

    • I was truly stunned by the beauty of that sunset but thankfully not to the point where I couldn’t run out and get some pictures. It’s one of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen and I’m glad to be able to do it justice.

    They’re both beautiful, though the first one is stunningly so. Well done Janet.

    Fantastic shots Janet! Congrats.

  17. Such a unique sunset! No matter how many sky songs you watch, they are all so different.
    Love the cool and texture of the second one.

    • Sunsets and rises are shots that can be taken day after day after day and always be lovely. I’m glad you liked the shots. Thanks for stopping in. I happened on your blog today and remember your name from ‘way back when I started my blog. Nice to connect again and know you’re still around.

    Lovely shots Janet! I do so love sunsets / rises – so many folks out there don’t even notice them – but anyone who has an intimate relationship with their camera (or iphone or ipad) does, so thank you for capturing this one. I do also like the second one very much, love the close up of the log end juxtaposed with the landscape in the distance, very nice!

    • Hi, Nancy. Glad you could stop by. I love sunsets but this one was particularly spectacular and I’m glad I was within reach of my iPad (which I almost always am.) About the time I don’t have the iPad or a camera with me, I see shot that it kills me not to be able to take. Another reason to get an iPhone, I guess. I’m glad you like the second one because, although it’s not as showy as the first, I like it for the same reason you mentioned.

      Enjoy the weekend!

  21. Both are extraordinary. What a beautiful world we live in.

    Beautiful

  24. Lovely! I especially like the first one! Love the colors — so magical! It’s as though taken from a Harry Potter movie. 🙂

  25. Paula says:

    Beautiful colours in the first one and an intriguing landscape in the second!

  27. Colline says:

    I really like your second shot with the fallen log in the foreground.

  28. Woolly Muses says:

    Love the colours in your first photo.

  29. FireBonnet says:

    Taking good shots of the sky in a suburban environment is not an easy thing to do! I’m usually plagued by telephone poles and power lines messing up the shot. But you captured great color and cloudscapes in the first shot. Awesome!

  30. Those are some unreal skylines! Such colors… It’s like something out of a dream.
