Been wanting to connect to thank you for your continued attendance and support – AND – to let you know that I am truly in awe of your unique site(s).
Dude, very awesome to hear from you , continual support and attendance at the ready … and awesome, obviously … see you soon 🙂
Wow! This is an incredible shot. Obviously you’ve got lots of photography experience 🙂 I don’t take my own pictures, but I’m a graphic designer who also tries to capture feelings in pictures and make things look visually wonderful. It would be amazing if you could look at some of my work and tell me what you think. My blog is http://cupcakewriter.wordpress.com/, and thank you so much for the follow. Have a great day!

Thanks that’s much appreciated 🙂 … I’ve visited and liked a few things on your blog. I like your work, it’s very good … And I blogged about you here – https://doncharisma.org/2014/03/30/cupcake-writer/ … enjoy 🙂
I agree with manikani2d…it does look like the ocean is square…and the sunset picture a few posts down from this one looks like the other half of the square…and like you are looking through from the other side. Love the pics. Thanks for looking me up…I am glad to land here! Blessitude ~ Lorrie
Hey Lorrie, you’re most welcome indeed 🙂 … Square oceans, not my intention by cool never-the-less !
It’s amazing how we try to fit things into a nice “box!” or was that thinking outside of the box? 🙂
I don’t know hun, sometimes I think inside sometimes outside, depends on what it is that I’m engaged it !
There’s something that reminds me of a bowl with the sun reflecting from inside it. Beautiful.
For sure … thanks hun 🙂
I like the transition from cool tones on the left to the warmer tones on the right. That’s what makes it feel a bit surreal to me. Very nice.
Thanks Jess 🙂
It’s very unusual lighting in the sky. Above the (dark) clouds, it’s “lighter” than where the sun is. It looks like the sun is shining through a haze from a fire off in the distance…
For sure, I think part of the effect might be the autoexposure on my iphone … still it’s unusual, and unusual is good 🙂
The skyline and ocean horizons were made by the Great Architect high above. He looks down on us with great love. Take time to remember him in your prayers. His love for you is far beyond your view. Take time to let him know you enjoy it, too. He made his creation with you in mind. Enjoy it as he loves you far beyond your understanding. ~Yolanda
Very beautiful, thanks for writing … the creator loves me, yay !
Hello! Good way to generate comments! I don’t know much about photography but for me i think you made it looked like the ocean is square and you are in one of the four corners ;-P really good!
Thanks much appreciated … now we have square to add to the adjectives list 🙂
It’s almost as if the waves are smiling…I like this one.
Thanks Audrey … you can come again 🙂
I can? Thank you for the invitation… 🙂
😆 teasing, but I know you can take it, so it’s allowed 😀
I can, and it is. 🙂
So all’s well then mrs ?
All is well, however if you keep posting sunsets and talking pizza I may have to board a plan. 🙂
LOL, I think it could well be Pizza day tomorrow, and this evening’s sunset was epic, I mean spectacular, 600 photos, I just couldn’t stop shooting until the phone was full, I got a message … so Bangkok airport, what time does your flight arrive hun ?
Now you’re just rubbing it in my face. That’s a lot of pictures. How will you decide which ones make the cut? LOL
Bangkok sounds perfect. Not soon enough I’m afraid. Still packing, DC.
Just actually speaking the truth hun, I really did take almost that many photos and I may well go for a pizza tomorrow … glad to see you happy anyway 🙂
Take your time hun, bangkok will wait, and worth the wait it will be 🙂
I’m happy. Did you think I wasn’t? I was being serious..how do you choose?
LOL Don’t make me bite my lip and giggle, DC. That will only lead to trouble. 😉 Where’d I put the suitcase?
LOL, ok, well choose a word you like then …
Trouble, you, nah, I don’t believe it !
Ummm…how about feisty. …I like that word.
You do too!
😆 typical lady, making decisions for me !
I like confident even for lady, spikey bits don’t do much for me, but women with strong character does … but you know this already hun 🙂
You told me to choose a word! I’m not typical…I think the reason I like you is that you would never allow a girl or anyone for that matter to decide anything for you, DC. You come off too strong for that…
Yes, we’ve discussed this before.
Yes we have, and generalisation will always get one in trouble !
I do my best to be strong, but no man is invulnerable or without a gentle side … well not at least any men that I like very much 🙂
Are you about to give me a stern talking to, DC?
Yes, of course.
Would you like me to ?
I’m not sure. I feel like you want to… lol
Come on lady pull yourself together … was that stern enough ?
I can’t! I’m stuck in a hole and the rope is in a ball of a mess…no, not really! LOL
LOL … well done hun 🙂 … Anyone for pizza ?
Yes! Let’s have pizza!! What’s your favorite?
Just plain old motz, tom sauce and fresh basil … maybe some cooked cherry tomatoes … and if I was really feeling adventurous, freshly grated reggiano and maybe some rocket … Italians definately do pizza best !
Hmmm, but there really is no maybe to the cherry tomatoes. That, my dear, is a must. And a cold beer, if it’s too early for tequila. They do…they really do.
Ok, so pizzas on you then hun 🙂
Cold beer sounds good, now you’re making me proper hungry !
Wait…wait…let’s do this right. A few of their saltiest olives at the bottom of mine, please. 😀
I’ll have my olives on the side … and actually just remembered I drink red wine with pizza, you confused me !
Good to know, I don’t drink red wine at all. Currently looking for a new pizza guy…. 😉
It didn’t use to that much … until I went to paris and they gave me it with the cheese board … guess what, if I drink red wine and eat cheese I don’t get upset stomach … so you know what, now I drink red wine with pizza 🙂 …
And up to you hun … I doubt you’ll find a better Pizza guy though !
I actually only drink rum 75% of the time because of the same reasons. Red wine is hard to enjoy. I suppose I should try and find one I like.
I think you’re right. 🙂
I didn’t know run was a “digestive”, will have to try that … I used to get awful indigestion with cheese, now I just grab a glass of red and problem solved … I do like cheese so happy the frenchies taught me 🙂
Well it probably isn’t just doesn’t blow a person up like a balloon when its consumed. This conversation is getting entirely too….something….medical, maybe? 🙂
What else did the frenchies teach you, Mr. Charisma? 😉 (laughs a lot because I think I’m hilarious.)
Ah, ok so I’m gonna try that, alchohol and me don’t get on great, so rum is sounding like worth another try ! Medical, schmedical …
Now that my dear isn’t for my non-mature blog … when I start the Hugh Charisma blog or the Don Hefner blog, then we can discuss !
Give it a try and let me know if the rum works out. I didn’t know you could rhyme.
LOL…how long is the line for that one? Haha! Cheers, DC.
I’m a poet and I didn’t know it !
No idea hun 🙂
Thanks hun 🙂
Beautiful Don. The Sun looks so far away, maybe that is why.
For sure … something surreal about it still !
I dream of getting married at a beach with a sunset! This is so beautiful! Thanks for the follow! I changed the name of my url to match my tagline. The new url is itsfoodforyourmind.wordpress.com

Wow, that picture was beautiful, thanks for sharing! I’m sorry for my late reply, I rediscovered my blog recently. I’m trying to make an effort to pick back up on my blogging! Any tips to keep up with my blogging?
Tips to keep it with blogging – make it a social affair …
I love the curves and edges. Makes me want to be there. Beautiful!
The way you have captured the reflection of the sun makes it appear like you are on the edge of the world as if we can see the curvature of the earth ! Well Done !!!! :o)
Thanks, that’s much better than I could have described it !
Wow! Breathtaking! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend. 🙂
You are extremely welcome 🙂
I think it is because the right side is full of color and the left is kind of monochrome… Maybe? Anyway it is nice and peaceful.
Thanks hun, peaceful is good 🙂
Don, at least to me, it appears that the sun is “further away” than what is normal.
Yup, that’s true enough !
