Photo Friday: Sunset

Some photographers feel that you must have a novel angle for every photo. How else are you going to distinguish yourself from the masses? I'm not so sure though. When I go through my travel photos, a great view or a particularly pretty sunset always makes me pause, take a deep breath, and put myself back in the moment when I took the photo. Novel? no. Rewarding? Yes.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        That's a beautiful sunset - no need for a fancy angle.

        I've been taking photos longer than I can remember. Sunsets are gorgeous no matter the angle, the place or the person who takes them. To me, if a photo means something to YOU then it is unique. Just because a photographer might have a "novel" perspective, it doesn't mean people will like it. Keep shooting exactly what you love woman!

        it's a lovely shot, one which invites each person who looks at it to think of their own memories.

        I'm with you. We took so many pictures of the sunset in Oia when we were on our honeymoon in Santorini, and I know that my photos match those of a million other tourists. But they are still special to me and I have some framed and hanging up for that reason!
