Sorry for the lack of activity on the blog of late. I’ve been working on several projects and just haven’t been out with my camera.
Yesterday I decided enough was enough and grabbed my camera and a couple of lenses and headed out to see if I could capture a sunset. Tricky thing (at least for me) about sunsets is that your never fully sure how they are going to look because of the clouds.
This is an image I took while waiting for the sun to get into the right position. I had my camera set up on a tripod and was going to take a series of shots as it went down beneath the clouds. I thought I had found the perfect place.
So after the sun went down below the clouds and I got what I thought was a reasonable shot I packed up and headed back to the car. There was still enough light to capture this image so I did. 🙂
What I didn’t realize because ,it looked like a solid bank of clouds, was that there was an opening at the bottom of the cloud. When I turned to go North I saw this amazing reddish light pouring down from the main cloud bank. Well damn! The tripod is in the trunk and I’ve gone a couple of miles from my original (perfect) location.
So I stopped the car and shot what I could get. The sky was amazing and I’m not sure this image does it justice but it’s pretty close.
I love photographing sunsets with lots of clouds. You can click on the image to see a larger version of it.
That’s it for today. I caught a cold Thursday and (not expecting any sympathy) have felt progressively worse through the weekend. 😦
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Hope you enjoy your day. Be careful.
