Anatomy of a Sunset - 3 of 4

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 1 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The third of four shots I captured on what had to have been one of the clearest nights to observe a sunset. This series takes you from "beginning" to "end." Rather than a distant shot, I zoomed in for this capture which provides a whole different ambience without the clouds. Not impressed with the compressing that Aminus3 did here. Photo taken in Fort Myers Beach, Florida (Friday) March 20, 2009.

Wonderful shot, Steven! Great glow in the sky and in the clouds. Interesting how the choppy water offers so little reflection. Loving the series... and hoping your last shot features the elusive green flash, this looking like a fairly good candidate for that phenom to me! Thanks for sharing!

@Tony Duque: Many thanks for such a gracious comment, Tony. I am quite humbled and thankful. I remembered a photo of yours I commented on not so long ago, but never saw your web address or portfolio. When I saw your portfolio, I was astounded by the sheer volume of sunrises. I need to spend more mornings along Lake Michigan. ;-)
