Horse Memorial sillouette

If there is something I have a soft spot for as a photographer then its a sunset. You can never get tired of the sun disappearing over the horizon with its coinciding oranges, yellows, blues and purples along with a beautiful afterglow. Even better is when you can find a nice subject to put in the foreground to compliment the sunset. In this case the Horse Memorial here in Port Elizabeth.

    Looks like the man and horse are really there in front of that colorful sunset instead of being a statue. Very nice capture Jonker.

    Absolutely beautiful, Firefly. And tugs at my heartstrings to visit PE again. The images look so real, the sunset brings them to life. Greetings from a South African living in North Africa. Jo
