Hey Dude


"Hey, dude."
Beal Park at sunset
Midland, Texas

It got up to 76 degrees F here yesterday. As I was driving home from nearby Midland, I stopped at a park to get some sunset pictures. I was in good company, lots of people out enjoying the unseasonably pleasant weather. The people, the sunset, and this hill made fun silhouettes.

Great photo, Debi. So professional looking. I do love the anonymous silhouettes against the orange sky. Yet such American dudes with their baseball caps and their baggy shorts. A real cultural picture.

This is so awesome how the guys are in silhouette and the plane seems to have a light on it.

Nice. I feel that I am part of the scene.

That luminous sky certainly throws the figures into stark relief.

Looks like they are having a great time, but this photo does have an other worldly quality to it. It must be they are playing against an orange sky!

Cool! Looks like fun.

That is very impressive. Not just technically, but the scene is so readily identifiable but not a cliche. The fact that the object is a model plane and therefore in need of wide open spaces, dovetails into your design perfectly.
