Sunset @ Lake Eola

I found myself in downtown Orlando, with a little bit of time to kill.  I decided to re-visit Lake Eola.  My challenge to myself was to capture different images than previous visits to the park.

The sun was just disappearing behind the skyscrapers.
I know that these are simple images, but they are some of my favorite!
The swans ... 


...
were getting in their evening swim. 
As the sun went to sleep,
 the lake turned to gold.  
(Image above straight out of the camera)
then, a pale red.



Take your friends
and go to sleep
Return to your nest
and go to sleep
THE END

What do you mean simple images??? These are stunning! That swan is a beauty and what amazing color in that sunset! I truly enjoyed looking at these tonight! You made one error in your typing...you said, "The sun was disappointing behind the building..." I think you meant "disappearing."
