Sweet Sunset on the Beltline

Photos From the Atlanta Beltline

Last week, I needed a few small groceries, so I grabbed my camera and walked down the Beltline to Kroger. It's a little under 1-1/2 miles from my house, so it's an easy walk.

I can only buy what fits in my backpack since I have to carry the stuff home but with the price of groceries right now, that's fine! Yeesh. I can't believe how much it costs to eat.

I wanted to walk down to Piedmont Park and then hit the store on my way back but I had to finish some work. By the time I got going, I didn't have time to make it to the park before sunset, so I settled for the walk to Kroger. 

This was my first shot of the walk:

It's a multiple-exposure shot of a tree. I like the ghostly part of the images I get when I shoot multiple exposures. I headed down to the Beltline toward the store after I took this. 

There was a lot to see as far as people - it was a gorgeous day and the path was full. But, I didn't have much luck with the fall foliage. There just wasn't a lot happening with the trees, so I didn't get as many shots as I would have liked. A lot of the trees that I thought would be pretty either hadn't quite turned colorful yet or they'd already dropped most of their leaves.

Ah well, it was still a beautiful walk to the store. I picked up my few things and headed back outside. As soon as I was back out on the Beltline on the bridge over North Ave, the sun was setting, so I walked off the path and stood and watched, and got a few photos, one of which is the cover photo for this post. 

The sunset started out yellow-orange but turned into some beautiful shades of orange-pink. As I walked home, I wished I was on the top of one of the new tall buildings there on the path. 

The sky was amazing. The clouds were interesting but from where I was walking, I didn't have a great shot. When I finally turned off the Beltline, the spot wasn't much better but I stopped anyway and captured a few more photos. 

As I aimed my camera up into the sky to get the clouds, I saw the airplane. I had such a sudden and strong desire to be on that airplane up in the sky checking out the clouds and flying off to some exotic destination!

The airplane is so small in the photo but I loved the feeling it evoked, especially against those amazing clouds.

When I stopped to get the photos, some young women behind me almost ran into me because they were so into their phones. 

It kind of blew my mind that the sky could look like that, and people don't even notice. Then again, I'm obsessed with clouds!

I haven't had a chance to get back out with my camera, but I'm hoping to this evening or tomorrow. The fall foliage disappears so fast. I hope you've had a chance to enjoy it. If you want to enjoy it year-round, you can always buy a fall photo:)

Have a great rest of your week, and see you between the raindrops!
