    That’s incredible. I’ve only had one of those dark red sunsets and I didn’t have a tripod and it was way too dark. :(

    That’s a fantastic catch. Congrats. I hope my brother saw it. :)

    You are a lucky guy, living in such a breath taking environment – and you pictures show that you are aware of that! Really great!

    Tired of your sunset pictures? Never! You could post them every day and I’d still visit your site (probably every day just to see that day’s sunset).

  • 16 David // Oct 1, 2007 at 3:43 pm

    Simply amazing!

  • 17 emm // Oct 1, 2007 at 4:16 pm

  • 24 Rick // Oct 1, 2007 at 9:41 pm

    Thomas you have outdone yourself!! Bravo!! Never seen a sky that red before. dont worry about taking to many pictures of sunsets. They are all beautiful!

  • 25 Bryan@OneMansGoal.Com // Oct 1, 2007 at 9:44 pm

    That’s gorgeous. You should consider blowing up these images, framing them, and selling them. Photographs like this go for quite a bit of cash at a local gallery where I live.

    Something to consider.

    Stunning!

    Every sunset is new. Some photographers may render them so they look the same or impart the same old message: day is done.
    Your sunset is magnificent, and when you photograph the sun setting, you bring us to the threshold of different worlds, the lives we haven’t led and/or can’t comprehend. That’s the difference between art and travel postcards. Keep ‘em coming.

  • 33 Georgia // Oct 2, 2007 at 3:32 pm

    Thomas your pictures of Norway are amazing and this beautiful sunset is breathtaking!!! Who in the world could ever get tired of pictures like these??? NOT ME!! Keep them coming!!!!
