For some reason in June we had magnificent sunsets. Often I catch just the last few seconds, with tantalizing hints of what I missed.
The picture above is one of many I shot on the evening of a great sunset.
Usually we get a feast of orange, blue, bright yellow, and dark shades, much like the one to the left.
Mind you, they are all beautiful, and all immensely interesting to me. One note I should make.
I did very little to these other than sharpen them. You are seeing pretty much what I saw, and shot (RAW capture, NikonD200, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens).
Another point of interest, I would never have been able to get these shots when I was shooting film.
Shooting digital has allowed me to capture stuff that always frustrated me when shooting film. Or perhaps it is me, having learned much since those early first days of my ventures into photography. Naw, I’m pretty sure it’s the camera and digital sensor.
Whatever the reason, I get more great (to me) pictures than I can shake a photo album at.
Speaking of which, as usual, click on any of the photos to be transported to the SmugMug gallery. It’s not very big, but it does show sequences from three sunsets, from wide zooms, to tight shots, and showing the subtle changes as the sun drops below the horizon. If you are into sunsets, enjoy.
