An old sunset photo

Old home, a photo by songdogMI on Flickr.

Sunsets are easy in one way; everyone seems to love photos of them. And they're fairly easy to take, except for the luck involved. You kind of have to predict how the colors are going to turn out on the film (or on the pixels), along with taking lots and lots of shots in a short time before it gets completely too dark. Considering I had only been taking photos seriously for about six or seven months, I'm surprised this came out as well as it did. I've quibbled with myself about the crop, but I left it as is because then there's maximum sky and color.

This is the house I lived in from 1974 till 1989, and my family lived there another four years. It was torn down a few years ago and only the pines remain. The photo was taken in January 1987.

Thank you, but it is not of my making.

I Googled "Sunsets" and found it.

The sunsets at The Farm were incredible...wish I'd taken a photo of one there.

The user pic looks very much what sunsets there
looked like.
