Skyline in Early Evening

Went out on a photo club outing on Sunday evening and caught the rays of the setting sun just before and after sunset which took place at 7:46 p.m. The days get shorter by 3 minutes a day.

I used a variety of exposure settings, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority…nice to be open  and I found that I was wishing that I had checked my notes on fireworks about what exposures to use to get those cobalt skies. It wasn’t a blue sky, there was more grey and yellow so I will have to get out there again. There was good conversation with others about what people were using and I enjoyed being out there.

  1. It was interesting seeing which settings yielded which results.

    • I found that interesting as well. But the time is important , as well as the exposure settings.I like when the colours show up and will experiment with longer or slower shutter speeds.
