Sunset on Fire

November 13th, 2011

Went out to get a carton of milk and noticed that the sunset was looking interesting, so I diverted to the nearby Shoalhaven river to see if I could get any interesting shots. The tide was high and I had to wade out into the water waist-high (shorts got a bit damp) with my tripod to get a clear shot of the river. The sunset turned spectacular pretty quickly and shortly before it disappeared, a lone pelican glided into view. In the background are thousands of roosting seabirds just behind the local oyster beds.

I took this shot with an ND4 filter on my Canon EOS 550D with the standard kit lens. Hope you like it as much as I do.

I love the range of colors. The yellow is a little blown out either due too long of an exposure or post-processing, but it's not bad enough to really matter. Plus I like the details we see in the darker areas. Like chrys002 said it's a calm shot, which leads to a feeling of peace. The sky is great and the water is also very crisp. I love how the pelican was in a profile view the way he was and not turned in any other direction. When you want to look at the sunset you can, but you may also treat your eyes to the cooler blues in the upper-left. Overall just a good shot. Thanks repomonkey, and feel free to post more.
