Autumn sunset

A plane out for a spin in the evening sky.

I seem to take a good number of landscape and nature photos.  There are several reasons for this:

1.  The continuously changing seasons where I live provide endless possibilities.
2.  Flowers, trees, and water features provide a chance for me to try many different camera settings, then compare the outcome to determine what works and what doesn't.
3. They usually don't move/squirm or not pay attention to the camera!  Although the day I took this photo, I was working with a quickly moving sunset.
4. The subjects are pretty forgiving SOOC, not a lot of demands for editing to make the trees look better. 
5.  It is very relaxing to photograph beautiful (and generally peaceful) scenes.

Now that I have some practice, I hope to move into incorporating more people and action into my photos.  I will keep taking nature shots, because stunning winter scenery is just around the corner!

Beautiful shot....
I like to take nature shots, too. I think people shots are very difficult!

The ever changing evening sky has still got to be one the top of my list of things I love to photograph. Each evening it's display is new :)
