Sky in New England - PAD #1012

Today the sky looked awesome as I left work. And about 10 minutes later the sun had set. It is depressing for the sun to set before 5:00pm. I don’t get to affected by the seasons but it just seems like you’ve had no day when you go to work when it is dark out and then come home when it is also dark out. Just seems like you really missed out.

On the home front I am working on getting out home computer working again. It has been an utter pain in the butt lately so I hit it with the system recovery and wiped the slate clean. We shall see how things progress from there.

Oh yes, this was taken with my new Sanyo EC1. IT is a 6MP camera and it won’t work if you put the batteries in backwards. Argh I could kick myself up and down the street for that mistake. 4 days wasted with camera phone shots.

    I hate the sun setting so early. Beautiful pic though!

  2. That looks like a painting – how bee-yoo-ti-ful!

  3. Chica says:

    Silly you! putting them batteries in backwards..Beautiful picture, I like how you framed the shot. :)

  4. Awesome shot! WITH A CAMERA!!! Amazing.

  5. That should have read “WITH A PHONE!!!”.

  6. The cloud formation is great and the pastel colors wonderful !

  7. Dad (Grandfather) says:

    Drew, Great photo! Did I teach you about leading into the subject with something? You did a good job leading into that beautiful sky with the track. Most people would look at that scene and not appreciate it. I’m glad to see that you can see the natural beauty that surrounds us. Keep up the good work.

  8. Drew says:

    idm,
    The early sunsets are tough, but the sky some nights can be simply amazing.

  9. Drew says:

    Thanks so much Olga, so when are you coming to visit with me.

  10. Drew says:

    Thanks Chica, if you read the comments below I learned those things from my Dad. He taught me much about photography. I should have asked him about batteries though. I can’t believe I did that.

  11. Drew says:

    Eddie, you got it right the first time, the shot was with a camera not a phone. No more camera phone shots till I get the new camera phone and event hen it will be limited.

  12. Drew says:

    Antoine,
    Thank you very much. The clouds are what drew me over to that area for the shot.

  13. Drew says:

    Thanks Dad, I think I unconsciously see these things and know that there are certain rules or techniques out there, I am sure that I learned many of them from you. I hadn’t consciously thought of leading in this photo but that is what I did. I just saw what I saw and thought it looked good together. I guess I was right as many people have stopped to comment on this photo.

  14. Great picture! Still digital cameras are definately better than the old fashioned film ones!

  15. Drew says:

    Mike,
    Both have their good qualities, I enjoy film and think that my background in film helps more with my current digital work. But I wouldn’t go back to film because of the ease of use of digital.

  16. Drew says:

    Sorry about that Mick. I misread your name.

  17. Kellie says:

    That is a breathtaking photo! It reminds me of winter time in Upper Michigan. I love your blog! Your photos are so good!

  18. Drew says:

    Thanks very much Kellie. I appreciate you taking the time to stop here and comment on my blog. I am flattered that you like my photos so much too.

  19. WHAT??? You’re a guy, you can’t be wrong!

    Beautiful photo – and look at all your snow – how lovely :)

  20. Drew says:

    Well, when it comes to technology I shouldn’t be wrong, it burns me up. Glad you liked the photo, thanks.

  21. Stephen says:

    That is you calendar cover for next year. Nice shot. How many cameras do you have now?

  22. Drew says:

    4 at the moment. But I can easily round up 10 within the confines of this house and garage. Thanks for the comment about this. I am amazed at how everyone has responded to it.

  23. penpusher says:

    Hi there, I love your photos!

    I have just attempted a photo a day project on my site, drop by sometime, would really love your feedback! :)

  24. Drew says:

    Thanks very much, I love the photo you have up of the child in motion, that is awesome. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

  25. Becky says:

    The road being desolate really adds to the leading into the shot. Hard to find that a lot of the time… Great capture!

  26. Drew says:

    Thanks Becky, that is a real compliment coming from you, I find many of your photos very inspiring and amazing. The sunrise in the windows was very cool.

    I was lucky because this was an empty track, used to be a horse track.

  27. […] I can usually get a really nice shot. I took a nice on last winter that I really liked, I called it Sky in New England. That particular image is much better than the 1 above and it is even in the running to be picked […]
