It's always a good idea! by luvmynynix

It's always a good idea!

So my lesson of "always bring your camera no matter what" worked out yet again for me. I pulled over to catch this incredible display of color (which couldn't have lasted more than 10 minutes if that) since I (thankfully) ran back in the house to get my camera.

I was on the way to dinner with a friend and thought I really don't NEED my camera. I already have a picture of A in her green wig, green glasses and St. Patrick's Day necklaces that Grandpa sent...what more do I need?!

Lesson Learned: It is always a good idea to bring the camera...no matter what! :)

So glad you did! This is beautiful!
March 11th, 2014  
Amazing colors such a pretty sky, jealous I didn't get to see it in person!
March 11th, 2014  
Fav for me! Absolutely beautiful colors. It is amazing how fast the sky changes, isn't it? I posted a sunrise picture a while back and mentioned in my comment that it was lucky I looked outside, because in the space of 2-3 minutes, the color was gone and the sky was blue! Truly amazing, and I'm so glad you caught this shot!
March 11th, 2014  
@tabarlett That is so true! It was over just a few minutes later as got to the restaurant. And...it also changes drastically as it is setting because of the movement of the clouds!
March 11th, 2014  
Oh, yes, you NEED your camera at all times!!!!! LOVE it. I love when the sky has these patterns. The silhouetting is lovely too.
March 11th, 2014  
Great example of the good advice re having it with you. This is really beautiful in terms of color and the silhouette of the tree. Beautiful!
March 11th, 2014  
Soooo gorgeous! I love everything about it! Is that a plane trail through the middle? Makes for some very interesting lines in the sunset.
March 11th, 2014  
@aerjoseph Thanks so much! I tried to figure out where the lines were coming from too ...no plane that I saw, but it was right across the street from an airport so I could have just missed it.
March 11th, 2014  
This is so very beautiful :)
March 11th, 2014  
My God, that's so pretty. I so agree: I bring my camera everywhere now- even across the street to CVS.
March 11th, 2014  
Beautiful sunset, bet you won't leave home without the camera now!
March 11th, 2014  
I discovered that the other day when I missed out on this amazing sunset! Gorgeous capture nonetheless, lucky you had your camera for this amazing shot! Just thought I should let you know that your comment about your daughter on my moon photo really made my day! :) x

March 11th, 2014  
From my laptop monitor I'd say this is pretty spot on. Great job!
March 11th, 2014  
@jackie8 Thanks so much! Yes, I was! Thankfully it was on a street that was not very busy as I was craning my neck to look behind me and get a better view before I pulled over!
March 11th, 2014

Tia
Just stunning!
March 12th, 2014  
another fav for your stack, Laurie - this is fantastic!
March 12th, 2014  
Lovely capture ...you are right about the camera, I have a nice point & shoot Canon S110 in my truck all the time :)
March 12th, 2014  
Super gigantic FAV from me. HECK yeah, always take the camera. I don't care if i look like a nerd or a tourist, I've got that thing with me now. Great eye and great find.

There is nothing that isn't perfect on this shot. Awesome silhouette, great colors, nice framing. This is awesome. Would love to have this as a desktop. Only my absolute favorites make my desktop. And I'd have to say Laurie, no kidding or irony, this shot made me say "Oh wow" out loud. The only other time I feel like that routinely is when I am reading National Geographic.

Great freaking shot. Laurels to Laurie.
March 12th, 2014
