Georgia Straight Sunset


Bethany and I joined the Famous Uncle Robert and Aunt Sylvia on their boat last night. It was a beautiful calm evening. Not much wind, but it was a very peaceful time as we relaxed on the Georgia Straight.

With the exception of some mist on the horizon, the sky was clear. It made for a beautiful sunset. The sun was a massive glowing orb casting its long reflection over the calm water. It looked incredible as it lowered itself toward the horizon, settling just behind a distant pier. I hadn't had an opportunity to photograph a clear sunset like this from the middle of the water, so I was very excited to get my camera and capture the beauty.

I didn't bother with any processing because I'm too anxious to show you last night's sunset. I don't think it needs it anyway. This is the beautiful sunset, just as my camera recorded it. Isn't it stunning?

This reminds me of the time I unknowingly set my camera to put the date and time stamp on each image. It was one of those once in a lifetime sunrises. I blogged about it too!

The good news is that you won’t make the same mistake twice!

Well go out and get more memory :)

Ahahah man that reminds me of the time I shot everything in broad daylight with the ISO set to 1600 on my camera. :( Good one, though.

Great Shot Timmybomb!

Just the way I remembered it.

I think it may have been better to not have the main subject directly centered - rule of thirds, and all that. The contrast is also a bit high, but the highlights really draw your eye to the main subject.


It was an enjoyable day!

Thanks.

Reminds me of what I do - often. I am forever taking night shots and forgetting to reset my camera the next day when I am in full sunlight. "Over exposed" would be an understatement. It looks more like a "whiteout" in a blizzard. Doh.
