Love those sunsets/sunrises
« on: April 19, 2017, 05:19:20 AM »

Yeah, I know; sunsets are cheesy. Hackneyed. Overdone. Everyone takes photos of sunsets. Not many take sunrise photos, 'cos they're too lazy to get up early enough, but everyone does the sunset. No real skill involved, just point & shoot at the pretty colours. But I love 'em, just the same. And to make them work properly, you do have to work at it a bit. Most I see from the sort of photographers who in film days would have a roll developed with a Xmas tree at either end & a beach scene in the middle, are pretty bloody awful - black foregrounds, over-saturated skies ... Well we can do better than that, can't we?

Don't be ashamed. Post away.  :)

Yes, I try to get out around sunrise or sunset (which is easier as you pointed out) not so much for the sunset/sunrise itself but how that light makes the landscape look.
Nice photo Bill.

Here's a recent sunset that was more subdued than many and I kind of like how that helps it not overpower the landscape.

Here's a sunset that's neither cheesy, overdone, nor hackneyed. I occasionally shoot a sunset. Don't usually get up early enough to shoot a sunrise. But I never show any of them except for this one. It's from the big fire west of Colorado Springs in 2012. I was on the east side of town as the sun was going down. I think I posted it once before on LuLa.

One very peaceful sunrise in Maine (Bar Harbor, Atlantic coast):

...and...
Earth Abides. A sunset that I think I posted elsewhere "here" previously. Some tones reminiscent of the OP by "The Chairman"

Here's one of mine, with the Academy Schoolhouse in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in the foreground.

Jetlag helps shooting sunrises  ;)
