I just can't leave (no pun intended) this subject alone. It seems as though the setting sun combined with the telephoto lens has provided me with images and color (none of these have been altered at all from the camera) that I continue to find fascinating and pleasing. There is a joy in the beauty of nature that is to me miraculous because there seem to also be so many imperfections in nature and how "she" works. I imagine that it is all spiritual, and often feel that spirit when I photograph the "natural world". When I see an image through the viewfinder of my camera that moves me and seems "striking" it is almost as though I have captured or contained nature at its best, having been lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
