In my opinion this image could have been 100% better, even a portfolio image if I had waited just 15 more minutes. As soon as I packed up guess what happened, the sky literally lit up like a fire, and as soon as I could get my camera back out and set up the color was gone.
Well, that was a lesson for me. If you ever see me set up for a sunset shot, you can guarantee I wont be moving:) Haha. It’s actually kind of funny to me because this is the second time that this has happened to me and both locations were places I rarely have the opportunity to visit.
The whole reason I packed up is because I thought it was over. I had two camera set up, for about 30 to 40 minutes and it was well after sunset. So I figured all the light had come and gone, but boy was I wrong. So my take away for shooting sunset now is “Don’t pack until blue hour” unless of course you want to take a blue hour shot.
