End of day over farmers' fields
Some evenings when their are a few clouds in the western sky, my husband and I jump into the car and head for a high spot to watch the sun go down. Yep, sunset chasers. The evening I took this photo, we guessed right and now you get to see what we saw, a cloud that looks like a giant hand catching the sun as it drops.

I like the different tones and colours in this poetic sky!Awesome picture, thanks so much for sharing!
Ah, this is one of those WOW moments in EG!
That certainly does look like a hand holding a ball of light. I really like the sort of twilight feeling over the land as well.
I love the rural sunsets you capture. This was another gorgeous one.
Wow! Sunset chasing has many rewards!
That cloud does look like a hand. What a fantastic shot. I'm glad you are a sunset chaser.
Never learn to photograph the sky when it is pretty. I always do it when I think about it and often there isn't anything pretty about it. lol
I love sunsets!
thank you for stopping by at my blog and for the wishes!
EG, can't find your e-mail. But we are moving in the fall. All is going well. Not broadcasting our moving date for good reasons!
What with my daughter's birthday, my sons being here, too, as well as my brother for my mom and dad's interment, it's been wonderfully busy.
The granddaughters are here, too, one is 2 1/2 and the other 3 months. So much fun.
the skies where you live are stunning :)
Great catch with the hand!!!!!! I wondered how you get such great shots of the sunrise/sunsets there. Now I know!
I still can't see yesterday's photo :-( but oh that cloud for today! :-)
Oh my goodness it really does look like a hand catching the sun!
thanks so much for the treat of getting to see it too!
Definatly a WOW Sunset....good job of capturing it.
What a breathtaking way to end the day! Fantastic capture! Such stunning colors! I agree, definitely one of those WOW moments! Have a great weekend, EG!
Beautiful ending to another day. Thanks for sharing. I really like the colors and the position of the sun.
Gorgeous sunset shot. It does look like a hand holding the sun. I love the fields in the foreground.
Snap my wife and I have done sunset chasing for 30 odd years I get so much pleasure from watching the sun slip below the sky line . where we live the sun sets over the sea and it is so nice to case it around our headland to see the last glimpse as it disappears into the water. XXX Don
Excellant shot EG, very beautiful and lovely colours, thanks for sharing and have a great weekend:)
Lovely! What a marvelous end of a day...thanks for sharing!
WOW... What a beautiful sunset!
The colours are sublime, this is the real WOW factor.
i love that firing sky
Thanks for pointing out the hand. I see it, too.
yap this one has that WOW effect. two thumbs up!
Sweet and sultry. I love it!
The cloudy open hand lovingly cradling the sun as it falls from the sky is magical! Beautiful scene!
Wow - I guess you really found the right spot! Really beautiful - and very relaxing... thanks for sharing it with us all!
You are absolutely right to chase the sunsets! This one is brilliant!
Do you also chase sunrises? Then you have probably to go in the opposite direction! Have a nice sky Watch.
This is a wonderful photo. So much beauty (sky) and so much hard work (farmers fields) and such great sunset chasers (you!).
Yes that is a beautiful sky.
What a fabulous way to end the day admiring so much of beauty in the sky. Great shot!
You did wonderful with this one, Ms TG! I like it.
Happy SkyWatch. I still take SW pictures but don't participate right now. I don't have the time to do comment answering good enough.
Wow, it is a fantastic view. I'm jealous how cool it looks out there.
Amazing colors in your sunset! That cloud really does look like a hand, holding the sun for all to enjoy. =)
What a beautiful soft photo. Great job.
Simply lovely! What's not to love?
i wish i could do the same! or we even have the same weather. i miss sunset moments. this is really stunning!
a stunning capture!
Very nice sky colors.
B E A U T I F U L !!!
I think there are some people who really are sunset lovers and one of them is me. I do love sunsets, it looks really romantic.
Wonderful capture. It really looks like a huge hand.
I like the way this sunset of yours allows us to contemplate the natural environment of our planet as well as the wonders of the atmosphere. I like the idea of being a 'sunset chaser'.
Awesome pictures as those others.
Oh, it does look like a hand is catching the sun and gently placing it below the horizon. This is truly beautiful!
Sounds like fun chasing the sun! Beautiful skywatch photo and a gorgeous sunset.
That does look like a hand. I can understand being a sunset chaser, with sunsets like the one in this great photo.
Absolutely stunning sight of the sunset. You did a marvelous job on capturing it in all its glory.
Ooh, this is so good. I do love these late summer skies at sundown.
Same here, we're sunset chasers too. This is great timing when you saw that "giant hand" cloud. Way awesome!
Beautiful composition - a pastoral landscape and a truly gorgeous sky.
Such a gorgeous setting. And a lovely metaphor of the cloudy hand cradling the dying sun.
Fabulous view of golden sky.
Very intensely beautiful. My husband and I chase sunsets too! It's great fun. Happy skywatching and happy Friday!
You are lucky to have a great sunset viewing locale close by. I envy you. This is a beauty, especially.
Sydney - City and Suburbs
Hmmm i felt really good when i saw your photo. It's like a dejavu of an old good memory . :)
And the sun is nestled right in the palm of the hand! Great capture!
a very nice shot. rom burning yellow to misty blue. :)
What a glorious sunset. I know there has been one every day since the world began but I could never tire of them or sunrises either.
It's worth spending some time to get such a great photo ;-)
Absolutely stunning sunset.
definitely worth the drive to the high spot.
sunset chaser--that is wonderful! no wonder you never miss to capture a beautiful sunset like this one.
Thanks for your comment :-)
Truely magical view, happy Sky Watching.
Cute blog button you have too, did you make that yourself?
Your Canadian fields are so vast, you must have had a long drive.
Dreamy SkyWatch photo, beautiful sunset~
Your effort is our gift. Lovely, EG.
what a wonderful sky!
How breath taking. Your shots are always so inspiring.
This is stunning, such a wonderful nature capture of light...a moment of beauty.
Looks like a catcher's mit! Breath taking sunset :D
Lovely glow. :) I like it when it is nice and warm. Unlike Manchester, UK it is always raining :(
Have a lovely weekend.

What an amazing sunset and I love how you describe it too!
P.S.: I went to see the article about The Cathedral of the Transfiguration. It does look quite impressive, it's pretty nuts that they spent all that money on it and now don't use it, though!
Truly one of this weeks "hallelujah-moments" for me, EG!
This is a beautiful shot.
