The sunsets at The Holler can be remarkable! (Please click to enlarge for optimal viewing).
But I never thought of shooting the reflection off the windows.
And even through the windows.
Outside, looking in.
The effect seemed almost amplified.
The Holler, part of the sunset.
Of course the sunset, by itself requires no amplification!
Cheers to you and hope you take time to marvel at our setting sun!
So peaceful! Through that reflection I can feel the beauty of the sun setting 🙂
A sunset reflected is still a sunset! Thank you my friend~
Exquisite – these beautiful sunsets always leave me feeling like the richest woman in the world, so full of abundance and satisfaction and peacefulness. The window reflections truly added another dimension to the rich sunset colors.
You feel just as I do and that makes me glad for us both! Thank you~
Great abstract vision! 🌄
Beautiful sunset scene. The reflection from the window makes it looks serenity.
It does look serene doesn’t it, the sunset is enveloping the house!
We’ve had some sunsets like that in Knoxville lately, but I haven’t been able to photograph them. Friends post their pics on Facebook, so I get to see them. Yours are great, by the way!
So happy you have them too & thank you!!
So beautiful..makes me want to sit at the porch and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa waiting for the night 🙂
Yes, natures gorgeous show every night! Come on over……..
I’d certainly love to, so soothing to see sunsets like these..!
Mil grazi & glad you stopped by!
So happy you think so!
Whoa! Can you hold that sunset right there for me. I am on my way over. Totally stunning.
Just put the pot on……..
It will be here for you……can’t wait until you get here!
I concur. Beautiful!
Cindy, this looks so much more beautiful than steel gray and snow…, and you captured the color wonderfully. Wish I was there.
Well…….when you coming cuz?
Marvelous Holler sunset pics!! Fantastic! Hugz Lisa and Bear
Cheers & hugz back to u 2!
Wow! So vibrant and alive.
Beautiful nature and her free show!!
What made them so colourful? Painted sky, beautiful.
For some reason we have amazing sunsets at The Holler. The only I have seen to rival were in Patagonia and the south seas. We are on a hill, surrounded by a valley, ringed with mountains, looking towards the sea. The topography has much to do with it I think, but thank you!
Wow, you do win for best sunset seen recently!! We don’t get those intense ones around here.
Not every night, but when they want to wow, they do!!!
What wonderful days of beauty. I am thinking about taking my kids to Banff this summer. I showed them your pictures and they were very excited. Can you recommend anywhere good for families? Warmly, Brenda
I loved, loved these cabins in Banff near Lake Louise on a wildlife corridor. Charm and comfort is theirs!
I also loved this place in Jasper National Park.
It would make sense to go to both national parks since they are close together and fabulous. Go to tripadvisor and check out other options. We also stayed at the Fairmonts, but they don’t seem family oriented.
Hope you go and post about it!!
Beautiful captures… funny so many have posted sunsets or sunrises today…
Must be a cosmic coincidence!!!
The beauty of nature combined with human architecture and artistic vision..
You are a nice man my friend!
They are beautiful photos
You are a good friend!
This looks like a fairytale. Purrfect 🙂 Pawkiss for a Happy Sunday 🙂
Cheers & huzs to all of u!
Absolutely Magnificent shots of a heavenly sunset!
You certainly have a keenly artistic eye for beauty
and a knack -and a good camera?- for rendering it all Alive!
How very thoughtful and kind and very much appreciated! Thank you sincerely~
It’s wonderful view~ love it ^^
That makes me happy that I posted! Thank you~
These are gorgeous! Entrancing!
Sweeter words were never heard!! 🙂
And just when you thought there was nothing left to take a picture of. lol
I wonder when I will run out of new things to click on???????
Muchas gracias mi amigo!
Grand finale for a day–wonderfully captured.
Very kind and greatly appreciated!
the perfect one to describe your pics!
Merci beaucoup mon ami!
Nature’s day sure goes out with a bang. 🙂
To bid us sweet dreams every night!!
Lovely of you to say!
“…the sun dies, blood-red, in the West…” As one might say. RH
What a perfect title!
Red sky in the evening! The fishermen will return with lots of fresh shrimps/ prawns tomorrow! 😀
(That’s what our local superstitious housewives say! L-O-L! Sometimes I feel, talk or think like one of them! Ha ha ha ha ha!)
Red sky at night, the sailors delight! We have more in common culturally than we may know. Thank you Hari for enlightening me!
simply stunning colors!!! love that you used your windows in these photos!
I wonder if it can be done off ice? Like on your lake. Or is the surface too marred?
It could be done off the lake when the ice is gone, if the conditions were right…but it couldn’t be done on the ice right now as the surface is very rough and covered in snow…
Ahhh. Snow and ice require their own expertise…..tag! You’re it! Love you winter shots!
I marvel at your sunset indeed!
So happy you marveled ma deah!
What a beautiful sunset!
So happy you enjoyed my friend!
Wow, breathtakingly intense color! Thank you.
So happy you enjoyed it!! Muchas gracias~
Ah, pastels make the heart softer. Lovely.
Yes, soothing to the soul! Cheers to you~
Wow! God’s in his Heaven, all’s right with the world! 🙂 I know you’ve said before but which Nikon do you have? 🙂
Yes indeed and look at the gifts we are given, all around us!! Cheers & hugz to you my friend. Ohm it’s a Sony HX300!
Gorgeous! Wishing you and yours Holiday Blessings, Cindy! 🙂
And you too Bette, my wonderful friend!
Merci mon ami!
By the fifth picture, the structure looks like a stencil, just mesmerizing. The whole post goes from 3-D photography to a two dimensional painting. Truly beautiful. You are a great talent! The red of the sky in the last shot just holds me still!
You are very kind. The sunsets at The Holler are often breathtaking and it was pure chance that I noticed the reflection in the windows and decided to go far it. Your words are beyond encouraging. Thank you so much my friend~
Stunning. I love the reflection shots. They definitely amplify everything.
A wonderful surprise! Thank you~
Beautiful Cindy Those line of trees look like a row of lollipops just fantastic
Those trees do make for great sunset photos and I love your descriptive imagery!
in the last picture what is that off in the distance, is that the silhouette of a tree? if yes, what kind?
I do not know this for a fact, but I suspect it is a cell tower, camaflouged as a palm tree. We are in a huge bowl valley-here, ringed by coastal mountains, and there is one of these monster palms to the north, east and west on the ridge-lines. Great perception btb!
Absolutely stunning! So glad you can enjoy it.
So happy you did too!

You are a gem Jules! Thank you ma deah~
These are some of your most beautiful photos. Very calming after a crazy weekend.
Ahh, that makes the efforts of blogging so worthwhile! Peace to you~
Beautiful! i’m speechless! 🙂
Well it can’t get better than that! Thank you!
Wow! The color is just fabulous.
I was surprised by it, but I am happy to hear you survived Cali and are safely home!
That’s a clever idea, and very beautiful! I’ve never thought of that either. I’ll have to try that next time there’s a sunset. But I may be waiting a while – pink ones like that don’t appear too often where I am! 🙂
Well, I will be interested to see when you do post & cheers to you!
Fantastic colors. Love the shots. 🙂
That makes posting them worthwhile! Cheers~
Awesome sunset! The Holler is a wonderful place to live!
If only I had a wolf-child………..
Third and last … nice shots, Cindy. My favorites are definitely the third and the last 🙂
Had to go back to see which is what……always great to hear from you and see your latest snaps. Cheers to you~

Unbelievably gorgeous, and a brilliant idea to shoot the reflection in the windows!
I do stop to marvel at the sunset often, but rarely do we see ones as beautiful as this.
