Been going through cleaning up galleries and such during all the non-travel downtime...so dredged up a few more sunsets I hadn't yet posted...

 

Disney Springs dusk view from a high deck with sunset colors still lingering:

While out shooting my usual wildlife and bird photos, I sometimes stay all the way past sunset - while these are bird photos, because they also capture the sunset skies, they qualify as sunset photos too.

 

The first set are from November 27, 2020...

 

Ibises flying in to roost for the night:

More ibi:

One month later, I again stayed out to sunset, on December 27, 2020...

 

Moon rising against sunset glow clouds:

Great egret partially silhouetted against sunset sky:

Just after the sun hid below the horizon, at the local wetlands:

To give an idea of how many birds roost in the wetlands for the night - every island of trees in the place was this full of ibis, cattle egret, and wood storks:

Another sunset glimpse of the wetlands from late December - snapped this one with my phone:

This photo was taken on a recent late afternoon scenic boat tour in Winter Park, FL. The view is from Lake Virginia of Rollins College. The prominent structure on the right is Knowles Memorial Chapel. Rollins College was the alma mater of Fred Rogers, also known as Mister Rogers.
