I'm not very fond of this because of the reflection, but the color is so pretty, I'm sending it anyway. It looks like there are 2 suns..

Carolyn, I'm starting to wonder if the sky isn't blue in Oklahoma! :-) Wonderful color. The reflection is pretty cool as well.

WOW!! This is beautiful. The big flairing sun is a bonus. California is in for a treat when the sunset queen arrives! Go get em' girl!

Carolyn, you know this isn't fair to have such immediate access to every sunset :0) Donna is right you'll need to check those incredible California sunsets.

When I lived in California for 30 years, they never had any decent sunsets, unless there was a fire or something. Hoping for better luck, but we'll be mostly going through the valley and the desert,(ugly part) so I'm not holding my breath!

Carolyn--this is stunning! I love the clouds and of course the brilliant color. Oh, and now it is confirmed that I live in the ugly part of California. LOL It certainly isn't the mountains or the coast!

Too funny, Carolyn. I really need to get you out here for a real visit sometime and see if I can change your mind. I bet you could get some pictures that made it look like it was pretty anyway!

Carolyn, People that arn't photographers DON'T SEE like we do. We are a breed apart from them. We see EVERYTHING in a different light. When you go to California this time you'll see a sunset there like you never imagined was possible. YOu didn't see like a photographer THEN and you probably wern't looking for the colors and lines and reflections and peeking sun behind and golden rimmed cloud or that rim of light on the sand that you have captured so well in the past. Look up! It's going to be a great sunset! Just pack the camera and don't shoot during lift off or landing! Try some other kind of shots too. Watch the people and shoot them for a chage of pace too!

LOL, Carolyn, I'm glad you see it too... I know it's upside down but it's still an exclamation mark rather than an i! LOL :)

Donna, I'll try to find some time to shoot something. I hope I can borrow a car and get to S.F. Would love to do that if I could happen to hit a nice day..I just have so little time. Bummer..

As usual, I'm on the floor..I never like the ones that make finals (well, seldom, anyway) I sat on this one for months and nearly didn't send it in at all. Go figure! Thanks, you all for the support!!!

Thanks, Gary, but this is the first sunset I've had in the finals..had one sunrise, but the rest have all been cats. Usually sunsets don't do very well, not that I care, cause I love them anyway and will keep on doing them as long as I can!!!

Thanks, Clifton. I have about 3 versions of it, didn't like the first so cropped it 2 different ways and this was the one I liked best, even though I wasn't all that happy with this one, either.
