Sunset At The Marsh
Last night after the bird action died down I decided to hang around the marsh pond for a while to see if the sunset would be spectacular as is often the case. Sadly, the sunset in the sky kind of fizzled, but looking toward the water I saw the setting sun casting warm golden colors and then I saw something else. It was none other then our good pal Mr. A gliding across the marsh pond silhouetted by the warm setting sunlight. So the actual sunset was no big deal, but a Mr. A sighting is always a big deal! 🙂
Thanks very much! They showed pic 3 on the 11pm TV news last night.
A golden glow Phil, stunning pictures and wonderful atmosphere.
Well I really appreciate that Jan, thanks.
GORGEOUS! Mr. A looks good with an orange background.
Thanks! He looks good in almost anything but I agree that orange could just be his color!
They showed pic 3 on the ABC TV News at 11pm last night.
Good for you and your friend to make the news.
There’s going to be no living with him now. He already thinks very highly of himself, but now that this has broke, well…
how cool is this 🙂 amazing colors 🙂
Glad you liked these alligator photos, thanks!
Alligator soup? 🙂 Unique views of the marsh pond and Mr. A.
Mr. A might prefer chicken soup. Maybe made with pink chickens? 😀
Looks like a sea of copper. Pretty imagery where the mind can wander like the gator glides.
I appreciate those kind words very much, thank you.
Mr. A in a pond of liquid gold!
It does look like liquid gold doesn’t it?! 🙂
In case you hadn’t noticed, I simply love sunset reflections on the water. Great catch, Phil. Having Mr A show up in there was just the icing on the cake.
It’s funny too because my plan was to shoot a straight sunset for the TV News, but the sunset started to unravel and then Mr. A showed up and that solved that dilemma right there!
A King in the Golden river…. amazing, they are amazing photographs… Thank you dear Phil, love, nia
That is so nice of you Nia, thank you very much!
I agree with you 😀 He is always a big deal!
Glad you agree Paula, I *know* he would agree. 😀
How I love your sunset pictures, Phil! Molten gold makes Mr A look just amazing! (A very overused word, but one I don’t use lightly!)
Thanks very much Maggie I’m thrilled you enjoyed these photos and I strongly suspect all this praise is going to really boost Mr. A’s ego, which I’m not sure we need more of that. 😉 🙂
Mr. A swims in gold! This is a really special sight! ▲
I’m glad you liked the view of our friend swimming in his golden water!
Thanks much I appreciate that!
Wow! Mr A looks like he’s lounging around in liquid fire. What a combination, Phil! Great shots indeed. 🙂
Thanks a million for your very kind comments Sylvia and I’m glad you enjoyed seeing our friend in the marsh pond enjoying the sunset. 🙂
Glorious light! Great shots! Have a wonderful weekend! Robyn
I greatly appreciate you looking and commenting Robyn! Hope you enjoy your weekend as well!
Love these Phil! Not the usual sunset pictures. 🙂
I started out with the idea of taking a regular straight sunset photo but when that started to unravel I was glad to see our pal show up to spice things up a bit!
And congrats on making the news!
Thanks very much Rick I’m hoping the viewers enjoyed seeing something just a bit different. 🙂
Molto affascinanti , il colore dell’ acqua e’ fantastico.
Sono contento che ti piace l’acqua d’oro colore Pat, grazie
Golden river! And, the reflections are stunning. Thank you, Phil!
Thanks a million Amy, I’m glad you liked these!
I love these photographs. I love the gold and Mr. A. These are just beauitiful He looks peaceful, too. 🙂
He actually was quite peaceful, he seemed to be just gliding along enjoying a beautiful evening, and perhaps that’s just what he wanted. Glad you like these!
Halloooo, Mr. A. I wonder if all that wonderful brilliant color makes him a happy gator. He sure seems to be swimming around in an upbeat mood. Nice stuff, Phil.
He did seem to be in a very pleasant mood indeed Steve and that’s how we want it out there. A happy alligator makes a happy marsh for everybody! 🙂
Never thought photographs of an alligator could look this warm and peaceful. Great shots, Phil.
Well I’m so happy you enjoyed this warm, peaceful evening in the marsh pond!
I loved these Phil
Glad to hear that, thanks!
