About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Good Photos Challenge Day 12 - Sunsets

30 Day Good Photos Challenge, Day 12 Subject - Sunsets

Okay, I'm puzzled. According to the weather guys our current conditions--heat, high humidity, haze or smoke in the atmosphere, pollution in the west, drought--should produce some colorful sunsets. This anemic pink shot on July 17 is the best I've been able to do.

But what did it look like to your eye? Was it more colorful than that? Perhaps it was a setting on your camera that washed it out. Sometimes when my flash goes off (without needing to) it will wash out whatever I'm taking a picture of - even if it's far away!

sayre-in my learning curve still working with "auto"--must get beyond, especially with a new camera that is willing to do more if the "pointer" (me) would do homework. I do remember that this sunset was more vivid.

I think it turned out good! Do you have an editing program with your photos when you upload them to your computer???? I edit just about all of my photos! Keep taking those pics...practice makes perfect!!!
