The challenge? Share a photo of either sunrise or sunset. I have to admit, I suffer from sunrise/sunset envy. The husband and I live in a hole. Not an actual hole. That would be weird. But, our house sits nestled amongst maples and alders. Beautiful, but the property sits too low and too tree-filled for either sunrise or sunset.
What that means is that I have few opportunities to shoot either. I mean, sure, I could seek them out…but that seems like a lot of work. Thus, the envy. However, every-once-in-a-while I get an opportunity. Or two opportunities, as emerged a couple of weeks ago when we spent the weekend at the beach. Sunsets, both Friday and Saturday night.
After taking a plethora of traditional sunset photos on Saturday night I started playing. I pulled out a glass ball and captured the sun drifting low in the sky (click here to see the result). Then I tried a bit of deliberate movement. Winner, winner chicken dinner. Sunset perfection.
