After Seeing the Light of Day...

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 April 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A sunset enjoyed in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Unfortunately, no emerald flash would follow as the sun disappeared below the horizon.

Photo captured on a tripod from the balcony on March 23, 2011.

SONY DSLR-A300 1/500 second F/5.6 ISO 200 900 mm (35mm equiv.)

900mm equivalent?
Must be using a 2 X converter then, it does look good mind.

@Curly: Converter, tripod and remote shutter release. The sun looked too small without the converter. ;-)

Like a large meteorite or ball is falling. This is awesome and hard for me to find the words to
say, except that it is the finest image I have seen of God's glory this morning. So amazing !!~
