The lines on the road lead to the setting sun in Newtown.

Hi James, You always capture the most amazing reflections (below) their wonderful.
This evening shot is so peaceful, I can almost hear the stillness of the night...you know the silence when your standing alone in the cold and the light is beginning to fade...
Its gorgeous, James.

A peaceful picture and a fine balancing between dark and light. I like the casual contrail pointing toward the sun...

Straight into the sunset - I liked that.

PS I have sometimes managed to get some fine reflection of a rising sun from lines like that. Maybe you can get some from these at sunset?

Lois said...

You caught that one at the perfect time James!

Hilda said...

A very peaceful ending to such a frenetic season.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, James. Wishing you a joyful, peaceful and love-filled new year.

Riding off into the sunset, great shot! The jet caught my eye too.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas in your new hometown James. It appears as though you are adapting to snow rather well. I loved all of your reflection photos below. You have a very creative eye. And I never met a Sunset that I didn't like. It reminds me, with gratitude, that I made it through another day. Peace James.
