[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The year 2006 is rapidly fading away like this sunset. A few more days and we will be ringing in another new year. (I am getting a head start here) We will all probably be hopeful for a better year, peace on earth, and life in general to be improving. My New Year's Resolution is to try and spend more time outdoors enjoying nature, traveling, and trying to improve my photography skills. All of which are in short supply!

I really enjoy this site and all the wonderful people and photography you find here. I am hoping you have a great 2007 and look forward to seeing many, many, more great photos. I get much inspiration from alot of you. So this will be my last post of 2006.

Nothing I enjoy more than a sunset at the beach. This was taken on a fall on a trip to Florida in 2005. This was from Blind Pass Beach, Sanibel Island, Florida, looking West out into the Gulf of Mexico. Approaching storm clouds coming in on the left! Makes you wonder what 2007 will bring.

Hope everyone has a great New Year in 2007!!!

This is a nice picture for to finish the year, Scott. TN is the best site to share our passion and, with time, to make friends all over the world. May 2007 will be a year full of new Joys and discoveries for you and for those you love. Have another nice trip around the sun!


Excellent shot to close out the year with Scott. I appreciate your friendship and all the shots you've sent my way throughout the year.
This is a brilliant sunset for it's wonderful color, timing, light play, comp, and interesting sky.
There's nothing that compares to those last moments of glorious light..
You've done very well here :)
Happy New Year!

Hi Scott.
What a nice poetic note. Excellent final for this year.
Your sky shot is really amazing. A few levels of clouds each of them illuminated by different on colours rays. Captured moment is selected perfectly. You had only a few seconds to picture this scene. Nice artistic work by Great Master.
Many thanks for your participation, perfect pictures and heart comments.
Happy 2007 Year.

Hi Scott

What a splendid scenary!
All the colors here - beginning with the water, then the sun, the sky and ending with those lovely clouds - are magnificent!
The timing here was impeccable (las moments of direct sunlight) and the exposure was managed very well.
Also the composition is wonderful, as well as the presentation.
Bravo, TFS and i want to wish you "A Happy New Year!" now, because tomorrow i'm off to the mountains :)

Hello Scott
What a lovely way to say goodbye to 2006. From what I can see your notes do not compute. 'Short supply of photographic skills' sounds like a bit of a fib to me especially looking at your portfolio. Your sunset is lovely and the colours are rich and real.

Hi Scott, wonderful sunset, splendid colors, great sky, very well done, * Happy New Year * to you and your family.
Ciao Silvio

Hello Scott, this is a very nice picture. Great POV, sharpness and wonderful lighting. Fantastic colours and great composition. I wish you and your family a Happy New Year my friend.

Hi Scott,

This is a magnificent sunset! Very well done. I hope that you and your loved ones will have a peaceful and prosperous new year.

Hi Scott

You sure are correct in saying that "2006 is fading away" and it does so with terrifying speed. Wow, this year has really flown past with the speed of white light. It's over, finish, kaput, terminated, concluded, over-and-done-with, and all that is left over is for the final bell to toll or for the curtain to draw close. In many ways it’s been a great year, but unfortunately there is also the moment’s one would rather forget, the sooner the better.

Anyway, your sunset is very appropriate for this moment. A well chosen photo for this occasion. It made me think of a Supertramp song and although the words are not particularly in tune with the end-of-year scenario it still fits to a ± degree, and it goes like this:

Brother, where you bound. (Probably it is a fitting question for the New Year.)
There’s a red cloud hanging over us.
And it’s so big and it’s going to burst.
All you people, with your heads in the clouds.
Hey Brother, where you bound?

With this New Year approaching there are so many questions we do not have answers for, but at least one answer we do know and that is that there’s a great year lying ahead of us on TrekNature.

Thanks for your good wishes and to you and your loved ones I wish a wonderful and fulfilling 2007.
Best regards

2006 is definitely fading away quickly. In NZ in 36 hours it will be 2007!
Lovely sunset Scott, the colours are just superb. Well done my friend, and have a good New Year...

Yeah, Scott, it's fading away.

A simple and effective shot.

Lovely composition and yellow shades.

Hi Scott

A beautiful shot to end the year with. Your timing was excellent. Love the low lying sun and the effect it has generated on the clouds, and the colour! Thank you my friend for all your beautiful photos you have shared with us this year. I look forward to what 2007 brings :-)

A very beautiful sunset Scott and a very appropriate title. I love the colors and the composition. Well done! I wish you a very good, joyful, healthy and happy 2007, full of great photo opportunities!


All the best to you in New Year my friend:)
I like very much the "mood" of this sunset, you got beatiful golden tones!
The effect of the light on the clouds is so good, it's really pleasant to look at!
Nice composition also!
Take care Ana:)

Hello Scott,
Thanks for this nice 2006-ending shot.
Wonderful colours and last sunset sunrays.
Let te 2007 be far better than 2006!

hello Scott,
lovely end of the year posting...but I can (kind of ) equal a marking of the end of the year and the heralding of a new one. My first grandchild was born this morning (a boy) and what better way to celebrate the coming of the new year with a new life? But it will be treklens rather than tn that will be the recipient of my baby pics!
all the best,
