Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

A Different View of a Sunset

The docks at White Bear Lake at sunset.

Sometimes the best view of a sunset is where the sun is striking an object or objects. One recent evening I found the setting sun lighting up these docks on White Bear Lake. The silver and gray docks against the blue water created an eye-catching contrast. The wind was fierce and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep my small camera steady enough for the shot. Fortunately, I was able to snap a couple of photos that captured the silvery light reflecting off the docks.


I was browsing through some photos in the archives last night and came upon this one. I thought it fit this challenge quite well.

It’s a full sun afternoon and I have time for fun. I went out with my camera because this is what all passionate photographers do. Here are more “sun” captures. Let me know if you have a favorite. You might need  your sunglasses for this first one.

    1. The moment I got out of the car and saw the view, I knew I had to shoot it. So glad I had my camera with me. Thanks for commenting.
