A Golden Sunset And Other Nighttime Photography

These are photos that I hinted at last week that I was posting this week – photos of a sunset, taken over a 30 minute period of time. It’s so interesting to see how the colors changed!

The sunset started with beautiful golden colors!

When I backed off the zoom, it didn’t look as golden; but you can see the purples and pinks overhead.

I also love how the clouds were kind of layered on the sky.

This is an attempt to reflect the sunset off the mudhole. It kinda worked…? πŸ˜†

It was still very golden near the horizon.

And so pink and purple overhead!

But then, the pinks and purples overhead started to creep into the golden layers. It was so captivating!

And it happened so quickly. The pink and purple horizon only lasted what seemed like ten minutes. I didn’t have a watch out there with me, so I’m just guessing.

The pinks and purples started turning gray…

And then the sky just looked gray until the sunset was over. And this has been a visualΒ storytelling of a sunset. πŸ™‚

Also, because Cee’s challenge includes night-time photography this week, here are a couple of bonus photos that I took on different nights. These are among the first photos I took with my new camera back in September of 2017.

    How are you?

    Beautiful colours, an amazing palette, a splendid sky indeed πŸ™‚

    I think sequential photography is a much underplayed opportunity. I enjoy seeing the before and after of an event and feel it enhances the main photo by adding narrative. I wonder if you’ve ever thought about animating with photographs…sequential shots such as these work really well as a short film? πŸ™‚

    Hoping all is well with one and all at the Lake πŸ™‚

    Namaste πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! ❀

      My camera is a Canon PowerShot with a 50x zoom lens and 16.0 megapixels. I found it at Walmart, and for my birthday, my parents put money with what I had been saving so that I could buy it πŸ™‚ It has been an amazing camera. ❀

  3. These are absolutely amazing! I love the variety of colors in the sunset… but the most amazing photo? That raccoon! How in the world did you ever capture that with your camera? You must be a “Dr. Doolittle” in disguise! Wow! Fantastic photo! I just love your blog!
