Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset


Basking in the glow of the setting sun.

She quietly paddled off after the sun went down.

The other sunset, which will be forever vivid in my mind happened earlier this summer. We were driving along the Dempster Highway heading to the remote village of Inuvik in Canada’s far north. After midnight the sunset began and lasted for a very long time. We pulled over and watched the spectacle with our mouths open. This was the first “midnight sunset” I have ever seen.

The horizon was set on fire.

the colours lingered in the sky for a very long time after the sun set because we were north of the Arctic Circle.

  7. One of the best interpretations in my list. Great job, Ms. Maggie. I like that duck (or swan) at the center of the second photo. It’s so cool to have her there.

  15. Beautiful and calming photos. I would love to see the sky over the Arctic, must be breath taking. I don’t remember much about living in Canada, (where I was born) but my mother has told me about the looonnng winter nights, and the feeling when spring finally came.

  28. I like the movement outwards from the close up of the basking bird to the panoramic landscape. Unfortunately I did not manage to see a midnight sunset during my time in Canada. Maybe one day.
