Photo of an old fishing boat being lightened by a red sunset against a magnificent mountain

Photo of an old boat being lightened by a red sunset against a magnificent mountain
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on August 8th 2007. Click image for larger view.

I found this old fishing boat when I was out photo walking on the beach. The sunsets are coming earlier now and this picture was taken at 9 PM. If you look closer at the old boat you can the red sunset light reflect on the white painting.

I used the word magnificent in the title to describe the mountain because that was the word that popped up in my head a couple of days ago when I was looking at the mountains. I see these mountains every day so it’s easy to forgot how magnificent they really are. Wish you all could see them in real life since a simple photo doesn’t do them justice.
Take a closer look at the upper right mountain. Can you see the snow spots?
That mountain is called “The Snow Peak”. Very describing name considering that there is still snow on the mountain this late in the summer.

    Thomas, I guess if you can see snow in the distance it might help you handle the hot summer days?

    Very nice, Thomas! I like the pink late evening light, it makes the photo almost into a nostalgic looking painting.
    How high are the mountains with this snow patches? (in meters?).

    This is picture is really a contrast of all sorts….

    It’s actually quite melodramatic.
