Wow, more great sunsets. I especially like the ones with the beautiful funky clouds. I can't wait until we get in some nice areas with beautiful scenery like yours.

Howard, I was re-reading your FAQ's last night and noticed that you don't use a photo enhancement program. DON'T even think about it. These photos are FABULOUS!!!! We are so jealous here in 40 degree, rainy Illinois weather. Have put some of them in my screensaver to remind me of what our future holds when we start fulltiming. Gail

What settings do you use to take the sunset photos. Mine never seem to turn out as well!

Wow.. I can hardly stand this. I feel like I'm in prison trying to escape! (Still working of course) I know we will (escape) soon. Thanks and I'm so glad you don't take it for granted and still remember how lucky you are.

I have a Nikon D70 and use the "Auto" setting most of the time. However, at dawn and dusk I use the "Nightime Landscape" setting. It slows the speed down, but there has to be just the right amount of light or a tripod becomes necessary. I'm still a "point and shoot" guy so I don't mess with the other detail settings and all the knobs and buttons. :)

But I think one of the biggest factors is filtering out ultra violet "noise" for sharper colors. If you have worn UV blocker sunglasses, you know how mucher brighter the colors seem. So I have UV filters on my lenses which help a lot. :)

When I bought my equipment I used my usual "I know nothing" technique and the camera shop folks helped me include the UV filters in my basic package. Otherwise, I wouldn't have had a clue. :)
