:D Thank you! :hug: That might be hard to do since weather conditions and clean air are part of what creates these sunsets. NOAA has an interesting article about exactly what creates these magnificant sunsets. There are links to both the long and short article in my first Journal.

Thank you. A friend just made me a RooCat one but I really like my kitty imagining herself as a big tuff lion. I'm sure all cats think that when they see themselves in a mirror. :laughing:

hahaha not at all, but we all have a sortof style to take picture and different camera . the admin at the sunset club said she was going to report me because I gave you a favorite on the sunset page. I knoz I made a mistake but I fixed it.... lest s hope she dont do it

I think they only report you if you won't correct it. Clubs can be closed by having Favorites on them because they don't go to the artist if given at a club.

Yes, I suppose we all have our own style but I regularly use 2 rather different cameras, a Nikon CoolPix 5700 and a Canon Digital Rebel. I guess that suggests, once again, I'm stereo typed by my style. BK I only photo with the Nikon as he hates the strobe on the Canon but doesn't mind the one on the Nikon. I also use it when I can't get the Canon to shoot, like very dark things or night skies. The Nikon will also do close ups on sunsets when it's too dark for the Canon or shutter speed is too slow. Good thing I have two. I'd really like to try a Nikon D200 or D2X to see what range they fall into compared. The other thing I really like about the Nikon is no lens to change. The Canon has a 18-55mm and a 75-300mm. Waa, waa, I want the newer one that go from 18-300! :laughing:

I don't know what went on that day but it's had fewer views and favorites than most of my sunsets much to my amazement and disappointment. I really liked how it had the different colored layers stacked vertically but it just sort of languished. I guess it's that saying you can never account for people's taste. ;) But, at least, I have you on there now! :D :excited: ;)

Not really, 5tick, we had glorious sunsets long before pollution due to both the clouds and altitude as well as southern latitude. We owe more to blowing dust than pollution. On a bad day, our visibility is 10 miles unless we are in an active sandstorm when it can be zero. Just took a sunset the other night which is blurry or at least not crisp due to the blowing dust but the colors are great.

Wow... I was miss informed *feels a bit silly* Well I always thought that such colourful sunsets were caused by general smog and polution and before then sunsets weren't as colourful etc.
Well that is always good to know =P
Where about in the world are you from to have good sunsets, sandstorms and cacti? lol
Nevertheless nice photograph *tries to keep on the subject and hide stupidity lol*

That's OK, 6tock, :tea: It simply isn't true in certain areas as there have always been, well, at least since cameras, spectacular sunsets. I have ones from this area and north of us about 100 mi. from the 40s that my grandmother took but they are mostly slides or parts of home movies. Both she and my grandfather were real shutterbugs even if only family or trips. My 1st camera was his Kodak 35 with the Anaster lens which I still have. Most of our alerts are pollen, dust, fungus, and sometimes smoke levels. Our biggest pollution levels come from overgrazing the land because of the dust or smoke from the forest and/or brush fires. We are the 2nd most lightning struck area in the US after Florida. Both dust and smoke make fairly distinctive types of sunsets.

I live in the eastern part of Sonoran desert, but not Phoenix which has fairly severe pollution, or smust as they call the combo of smoke and dust, rather than smog, smoke and fog.

Just goes to show you that you can't always trust what you are told especially if there is a hidden agenda. :(

Wow... the most I know about my area is that spending the whole day within the city centre is like smoking 5 strong cigarettes...=/
But thats good to hear that you enjoy continuing their legacy. My father used to photograph so much and all the photos that I've seen have been truely spectacular.

But yeah as much as I agree about the lack of credence people deserve... you cannot go over board because you just become paranoid. But most people do lie which isn't great but I guess that it makes the people who don't better people to know..?

The shutterbugs grandparents are my maternal side, while I have to admit, my father also took pics of everything on our trips when we were kids so it seems to come from both sides. Dad took mostly slides but we must have thousands of them. When he wasn't racing, he even came to my horse shows and took pics. and movies.

It's interesting to me that people always assume pollution is chemical, industrial, transportation when some of it is just man's interference with mother nature or mother nature herself. We had a fair amount of pollution 3 years ago but no outright warnings from the smoke from the Mt. Lemmon fire (85,000 acres) caused by lightning. Look at the pollution from St. Helen's. My point is that mother nature can cause pollution that makes ours pale by comparison. I'm not advocating we do nothing about our pollution but that we keep a balanced perspective on it. :gets of soap box: :blushes:

Well yeah definitely, althought some pollution is a result of humans intervention, sadly from what I know the majority of it... and to me its not good in the slightest however industry is by far a dreadful affliction. Althought the whole mother gaia thing probably isn't true I still feel like the planet should be treated that way because theres nothing worse than the thought that the future world and our future decendants will be living in a world stricken of vegetation and stifled by pollution and global warming etc.
If only the Kyoto agreement passed hey?
