Evening

I have a real fondness for the slight light at the ends of the day.

These are a couple of shots taken at the end of the day around the waterfront in Perth.  I am often surprised how still you can hold a camera when you really try!




You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.

Awesomely beautiful! I guess that's what they call the "Blue Hour" when the sky shows up such a beautiful indigo blue.

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful way to end a day, Stewart! Wonderful captures and such blue, blue skies!! Have a great weekend!!

These are nice.

Karen said...

Oh gosh Stewart, these are awesome!
I like the little rosy glow on the horizon in the first shot, and the lights on the water in the second shot are magical.

I never use a tripod either, I have always wanted one, but it would be one more thing to lug around.

Very pretty! I find these night/evening shots so hard to take!

TexWisGirl said...

the dark, inky blue is really lovely.

Gunilla B├Ąck said...

Fabulous! I like the second shot with the reflections in the water.

Yes, I'd say you know how to hold your camera. Excellent images. The dark blue water is my favorite element of the scene.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh my gosh I wish I could do that! (You lost me at holding the camera still.) Just beautiful.

Karen said...

Lovely twilight shots ~ divine photo ~ carol, ^_^

Andrea said...

Sure looks like you used a tripod ... beautiful and clear. Now I can be jealous because I have wrapped my arms around things, backed myself against things, pressed my camera on my face until it hurts and I still get a shaky shot. Is that because I am old or are you just that good? Darn, you are good!!! Love it, Stewart!

Excellent colors. Can't believe these are hand-held shots!!

Great shots, Stewart!

I'm always surprised as well.. I have good intentions, but never seem to remember to tote a tripod along with me anywhere I go. So I hold my breath. I brace myself. I do all kinds of tricks.. and if I'm really lucky, once in a while I get a shot to turn out almost as nicely as yours!!

I can't hold my camera that still anymore. I need a tripod, but don't want to carry it around.
Great photos Stewart!
