Point and Shoot Competition #116 - Summer evening

The Sun is the main protagonist of the summer ..
Surely all of you have been surprised with beautiful sunsets full of color ..
I have thought that it can be a very relaxing and typical theme of these times of the year, whether on the beach, in the mountains or the place of holidays ...
I hope your participation...

1.-Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1".
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras.
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

2.-. Entries will close 17 September , 2017 at Midnight (CET).

3.-. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

4.-. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

5.-. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

6.-. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

7.-. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

Point out that the great protagonist is the sun and the magic hour of sunset.
Apologies if the title leads to confusion
Thank you

I'll start, this was taken a long, long time ago with a 2 megapixel Kodak digital camera. Yes, technology has changed but the beauty of a sunset remains.

In winter the sun sets right in front of our house. The church is located in Belgium.

Must've been somewhere at the Westerschelde, the sea arm that separates my part of the country from the rest of the Netherlands. It's an oldie too.

Looking through my archives, I find a lot more sunRISE than sunSET pictures, at least with my P&S cameras... Here are three sunsets I like:

2006, Hauser Lake, Montana, USA - a reservoir on the Missouri River. Shot with my trusty old Canon Powershot A80 4MP workhorse. I really liked that one...


2008, Pawnee Prairie, Nebraska, USA - deer hunting trip. Also shot with the A80.


2015, Semiahmoo Resort, Blaine, Washington, USA - right on the Canuckian border. Taken with my Olympus XZ-1.

Thanks to Alayos92 for hosting, and thanks to all who post images.

This image was captured with an iPhone6SPlus at Sisters, Oregon, USA.

Best wishes,
Stu
