Sky Watch #34

I took these shots within minutes of each other. The first is one side of the lake. In order to get to the spot in the 3rd photo I have to drive to it even though it's on the same side of the lake but back in an alcove. The 2nd in in transition to another side of the lake. I took the long way around and captured this sunset. The lake is behind me in that photo. .


There were a ton of seagulls flying about. The lifeguard boat made a final lap around the lake and stirred them into flight.


You can see downtown Los Angeles on the left, those buildings that stick out like The Emerald City in Oz


I LOVE the colors in this. It was cold and peaceful and the geese were squawking in the distance.

When I saw your first shot, I immediately thought of the movie "The Birds"! Beautiful shots with such clarity and lovely, soft colors, and they are all three so different. Enjoy SWF!

Awesome pics - all of them! But the last one is simply stunning! So blue, and that sunset barely showing - this is a capture in the right moment! Beautifully done!

I thought the first was my favorite but when I saw them all, hhmm...I can't decide anymore, hahaha...they are just great! Worth the effort.

I like the colors in all three.

I can't decide which is my favourite of the three. I like the birds and the colours in the clouds in the first one, and the classic peaceful sunset in the second one. And the colours, the tranquility of the third one!!! I can't agree with you that it is cold, however! But that may have something to do with the fresh ice on the ground here!
