Wickkinish Beach, west coast of Vancouver Island.  Sunset at 9:20 on July 14, behind a point northwest of the camera position.

My wife asked me to take the photo below, with the sun atop a driftwood pole stuck in the beach sand.

Very nice. The drift pole woulda made a nice tripod too, or was it too high?

Yep, exactly the right height.  That's a pro photographer comment, always looking for a steady camera rest!

Bring extra batteries when you come out here!

Had a storm roll over tonight. Everything missed us except these dramatic clouds, right at sunset.

While you guys were dissin me and my truck I was setting on the porch with my camera in one hand and the "NEW" truck keys in the other waiting to go chase it down. People were texting me to get my camera out, was I seeing this and whether or not I seen the double rainbow. I didnt see no double rainbow.
But then again these news keys are so bright the glare may have whited it out. :shrug: I'm just sayin.

WOW!  Terrific photos, especially the first one!

But the best line of the year was the one about dead as Jim's truck...

There is a new measure for dead:  not stone dead, dropped in its tracks etc. but dead as...    :alscalls: :alscalls:

Medium quality :confused: I chased the sun as it went down anticipating big stuff with the clouds hanging around tonight. It didnt kick it up as well as I expected but I did get a couple mediocre shots.

sometimes I wonder....is that getting closer..... then it hits me

I had a personal conflict the other day, now I'm not speaking to myself.... I'm getting lonesome

I met the girl of my dreams, I was the man of her dreams too.....she used the term "nightmares" though.

5shots,
Where in the world is that sunset photo taken?  It looks like HWY 101 north of LA on the Malibu or maybe farther up toward Santa Barbara.   Great spot.  Thanks for posting it.

It will probably turn out to be a lake somewhere rather than the Pacific!
