Re: Showcase your best sunset photos

One of the prettiest sunsets I've photographed while traveling. Tenaya Lake in Yosemite. I have created several versions, including some where I really enhanced the scene but this basic capture was pretty much how it really looked, I think. Interesting that there were few people in Yosemite because the drought had closed down the waterfalls and most lakes were nearly dry, which was what gave me the foreground features here. The time I visited in summer the lake was full and less interesting picture-wise. When what you have is lemons, always try to make lemonade.

Sweet lemonade, Minnie. I especially like the ripples sending shivers through the clouds. Clever how the mud spot in the middle almost mirrors the mountain in reverse, and the foreground mud imitates the upper right edge of the mountain. How much did you have to move around to get all of this? Sharp eye, great capture. Matt

Catch and Release at Sunset

I stopped at Rock Harbor for some sunset photos and saw this fellow fly fishing at the bottom of the boat ramp. Very few clouds were present so, over the course of the sunset, I took a. bunch of photos trying to catch the curl of the line on the back or front stroke but wasn't able to get exactly what I wanted. I also wanted to silhouette him breaking the horizon, thinking I might have a better chance, but didn't want to get too close or get tangled in his line. So, I stayed put at the top of the ramp and slapped mosquitoes between shutter clicks. He caught several 10-inch mackerel and released them all.

The sunset that wasn't

Until the equinox tonight, 9/22/'18 at 9:54 PM, ET, it is still summer even though the temps are in the low 6o's. So, this is the last sunset of this summer, the sunset that wasn't.
