Before and After the Sun Set

I went out too late to take decent shots of fall colours in the daylight  but the colours looked promising for the sunset. Holding my camera on a fencepost to steady it I did my best to capture the sun as it was setting.

Then I turned my camera more to the right because I liked what was happening in the clouds.

then waited a bit after the sun went down, because then the reflections hit the clouds.

There was still more to come but more subtle.

Good night.

    • thanks Mia, it was a fun study as I adjusted and experimented with my camera settings, trying to let in the same light as I saw it..

  3. I love these photos taken at intervals. I did the same when this year on road trip to the North of Arctic Circle. Photos available in next January.
