Let me know which is your favorite.

Pens:

Thankful is the theme of WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. Yesterday I posted a tribute to Thanksgiving (click here) and I mentioned my adoration for Mother Nature.

So it is with sincerity that I proclaim my awe for her composition and palette. She provides an ever-evolving panorama of daily abundance.

Sometimes I must simply stand in her presence and observe. At other times I frame her contribution and shoot the scene. The images in the Lens section are examples of recent sunsets that inspired.

Although it is never as powerful as being there, the photograph is a stilling of the momentary awe. Thanks to WordPress for another opportunity to show the splendor of nature’s progeny.

Note: As always I welcome comments about this post and any part of my blog.

    Both are beautiful, and the first has (looking for the words in English)… Eh, belle photo !!!

  11. The first one is my favorite simply because I like the colors better. The second one is also excellent. I simply like the pinkish sky a bit better. Maybe a little less intense- more subtle- if you can call a sunset subtle. All sunsets are glorious when there is color.

    I love the colors in the first photo. It is only a personal preference for the second photo is equally beautiful.

    I can’t so I won’t 😉 I like them both for different reasons. I’m always amazed at what you can get out of the iPhone 4S, and the silhouettes in the second are just great.

    The second one. While I’m a HUGE lover of the color pink, the rich, golden tones in the 2nd pic makes it my fav.
