We got to where we wanted on the Wildlife Drive to photograph the setting sun, but it was not as dramatic as we had hoped for. It was still fun to photograph and got a few good images. Then we moved a little closer, around the bend towards the straightaway to the exit. These are combinations of exposure blends for darks & lights for shadow detail and bright detail along with multi-images for size. I was using 2 cameras, one with a 24-105mm, the other with a 12-24mm. The featured image is at 105mm (5 images, blended). If you see any specks in the sky, they are birds flying through. After the sun went below the horizon we then headed back to the motel to rest up for sunrise the next day.
Those sure are pretty! I especially like the second shot. It has everything you’d ever want in it.
Thanks! It is one of my favorite places to photograph. I am about to retire soon, so I can explore farther away than my usual photo spots.
Spectacular work and images!
Thanks! It is one of my favorite National Wildlife Refuges! Middle of Summer is a little slower there for birds & Wildlife, but still fun for landscapes. But usually sunrises and sunsets are very good. Being close to the coast the humidity in the air seems to help the colorful skies!
