The Embers of the Day

I took this picture last week in Newtown. I also captured a reflection of this scene in a window so I think you will be seeing this view again someday.

This is lovely, James. Especially with the line of fairy lights under the eaves.

I like the vision of the sun melting behind the rooftops, and the sky is simply beautiful.

Beautiful silhouette of that tree, James.

I enjoyed those lights leading into the photo - always a "good thing".

PS Thank you for the comment :-)
I used a Canon 40D with a Sigma 70mm/2.8 DG. The filter was a UV-filter that I always use. They were shot in RAW and converted in PS CS4.

What a mysterious image: lights, clouds, trees and shapes of things...

Yes I really like the way the line of the roof is traced in those small lights.

Hi, James. I'm back from my trip and commenting again. I like this shot; mysterious....

Time to light the candles and snuggle up.

Hey, why did you tell us about the reflection? What about our surprise? ;-))

Woo hoo, you are at 200 followers! Congrats!

Great photo. I need to get out of the house more around sunset, I can't see it at all from our house.

Tinsie said...

I like these kinds of photos - tree outlines, house roofs and the sun setting in the distance. Very nice!

Lois said...

Oh yes, I can see the small glow of the stove and all the embers of the long winter day. A real story of the skies.

This would make a good Sky Watch Friday post! We look forward to seeing the reflected image.

Carver said...

This is a wonderful shot. So much beauty contained in the photograph.

A perfect title for this shot!

Gorgeous colors!

I like the dark outlines and the brooding sky with the golden glow concentrated in the middle. The dotted lights add a spooky effect.
Cheers.
