True Gold, I love it Carolyn. Viveca. #19689

Bob Fowler

Carolyn, I'm starting to wonder if the sky isn't blue in Oklahoma! :-) Wonderful color. The reflection is pretty cool as well. #44729

Jeff Dykes

great shot Carolyn I love the colour and how it brought out the clouds.

Cheers!! Jeff #44730

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe

What an unusual reflection! I rather like the effect. You are absolutely right..the color IS pretty! What a beauiful backyard! #44739

Donna R. Moratelli

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! #44740

Joy Brown

I agree with all of the above! Great shot. #44761

Murry Grigsby

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. #44763

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

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! #44775

Carol Engstrom level-deluxe

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! #44841

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

Carol, there aren't any pretty parts except San Francisco and Yosemite! LOL.. #44883

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

Carol, there aren't any pretty parts except San Francisco and Yosemite! LOL.. #44884

Carol Engstrom level-deluxe

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! #44913

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

You got a deal! I'm just kidding, of course..I know there are good photo ops just about everywhere...even in the Mojave..LOL..I'll try real hard to find IT, too.. I'll e-mail you when I get there and let you know if we are passing your way or what.. #44923

Tracy L. Kolisnyk level-deluxe

Carolyn, this is unbelievably beautiful! The sky is just amazing.... Now this sunset is making a statement... Look at that exclamation mark reflection!!! Very cool, Love it!! :) #44928

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

Thanks, Tracy. I never noticed the exclamation mark til you said that! #44937

Carol Engstrom level-deluxe

Be looking forward to hearing from you--hope your route takes you this direction. #44942

Donna R. Moratelli

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! #44978

Tracy L. Kolisnyk

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 :) #45021

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe

Gorgeous sunset, Carolyn! The bar of light is what makes it unique! Very nicely captured. #45067

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

Thanks, Carol, Donna, Tracy and Gary!
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.. #45106

Donna R. Moratelli

Yep, There is NEVER enough time for anything! #45147

Kathleen Clemons

Congrats, Carolyn. #54562

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

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!!! #54589

Donna R. Moratelli

Wow Congrats Carolyn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where is the contest. I think that I missed it. #54716

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!!! #54860

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

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. #56262

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..
