Fireball sunset in Louisiana
Camera: Olympus EM1X micro 4/3 
Posted By: LightSpeed, 02-24-2021, 08:10 PM

I got this late yesterday.
I was out for wildlife and birds in flight. Wildlife and birds in flight were an abysmal failure

Nothing was moving. I ran out of light. But I stuck with it until dusk and this happened.

Great capture LightSpeed! A day you can get a shot like this is always a winner in my mind.

Just wanted to thank you guys. Some of my best stuff comes when I think nothing is there.
It's surely not easy for me to get good images. I work hard at it, but somehow, I've set a standard for myself.
Once I get a really good shot, sometimes trying to top it, or get just as good the next time around just doesn't happen.
I did think this one might turn a head or two though. But anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know I appreciate your looking at my threads.
Sincerely,

LightSpeed
