Weekly Challenge #387 Just after the sun goes down
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 05-10-2017, 08:30 PM

One of my favourite times of day apart from blue hour, sunrise, golden hour and sunset is early evening, just after sunset when the sky starts to turn dark. The fiery reds have left but here are rich yellows, golds and blues in abundance. Otherwise mundane subjects can take a new lease on life.

An overgrown irrigation channel points to where the sun was last seen.

A magpie rests briefly before heading of to its nest.

A tree silhouetted against a darkening sky.


So leave supper till later and get out there with your Pentax and don't fret if you miss the burning sunsets, often the best bits come later.

Good luck everybody



Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

This was right after sunset as you can see the bright glow on the clouds on the horizon. The 15 ltd does such a nice job with sky colors.

Marvelous idea for a challenge and great entries so far. Here is my humble contribution. The picture was taken just after sunset end of February this year. It was taken next to the Grünwalder Stadion in Munich, former home of TSV 1860 Munich and also the place where 'The Philosophers' Football* Match' by Monty Python was filmed.






The decision was not easy as I like this time of the day.

Well OK folks, time is nearly up. I will close this competition in the morning Eastern Australian Summer Time and post a result shortly afterwards. It is not going to be easy with so many great entries. Much coffee will be needed.

Thank you kind sir! I thought I would have a wider choice but a lot of my photos are just BEFORE sunset, or full on darkness! Too grey and wet this week here in the UK to get any fresh pictures especially for the challenge.
