East Gwiillimbury Farm/ Sky Watch

Monday evening sunset over an East Gwillimbury farm

The sky was more colourful north of where the sun was going down.

Pink clouds to the north of the farm

Beautiful. What is the photoshop technique you are using to give the photos a vintage and almost painting like feel?

Zosia said...

The second photo looks like a painting. Beautiful.
P.S. Thank you for your birthday wishes. Yes, it seems that my birthday present camera is a newer generation of Canon Rebel. I have a lot to learn, but I am looking forward to it. Have a nice day!

Malyss said...

I was thinking the same: your second pic looks like a Turner's painting, or any of the XIXth century painters!How beautyful!

see you there! said...

You seem to have so many beautiful sky days where you are, maybe because your weather changes more than ours does.

I still think the skies are better in EG. :)

Wonderful! I just love your sky shots.

Lois Evensen said...

Just wonderful. Mother Nature certainly opened up her color palette!

Gillian Olson said...

Beautiful colours, the picture of the farm is wonderful,

don said...

I like the sunset shot with the silo and the glow of the failing sunlight on the clouds in another direction. Just as pretty… both are very attractive images.

Jack said...

The first photo is really good, with the bright flash of light at the horizon.

George said...

These are beautiful pictures of the setting sun and sky. I like the gold on the horizon in your first picture -- and the silo standing guard. The clouds in your second photo are gorgeous.

so beautiful...dawn was truly special here this morning.

Kay L. Davies said...

Fabulous clouds in both photos, but I especially like the pink ones to the north. We get often all-around-the-sky sunsets out here on the prairie, too. Awesome, aren't they?

What serendipitous photos! Excellent work! We have such beautiful skies in Tucson, and I have lots of sunrise/sunset photos. Maybe I should post some of them if I can remember just where they are!!!

Judy said...

So hard to tell which I prefer - they are both great photos, but so different!!

Smalltown RN said...

That pink sky is simply amazing!

Gorgeous tinge of pink in the bottom photo. Almost like a painting.

Andy said...

EG, you have done it again with a couple of fantastic sunset photos. Keep on clicking.

Jackie said...

Both totally awesome shots, seeing skies like these makes me wish I could paint them.

NatureFootstep said...

love it. There seem to be some fog in there to. :)

Stewart M said...

Hi there - I think this is another one of those pictures where the inclusion of the grain store makes it far more interesting.

Well done!

Two absolutely lovely photos. Beautiful skies--beautiful setting. Have a nice weekend. Mickie :)

Francisca said...

Both your sunset captures are delicious; yet I agree with you, often the sky away from the sun is the more spectacular. As Kay says, those all-around-the-sky sunsets are awesome.
