Saturday evening, I looked out the window and saw a really fiery sunset. I made my way to Ponce Park to find that everyone else had gone to watch it too and finding a quiet space without a lot of people in the foreground was going to be tough. So, I went down to the fishing pier and found that it had been a great day for boating and there were quite a few coming for the night. Here’s the one I liked best.
I made a couple of exposures as the boat came down the channel but it’s position relative to the horizon and the dark silhouette I was getting weren’t satisfactory. The only flash I had with me was the little popup on top of the camera. I used it hoping to get some detail on the boat to avoid the large black blob for a foreground. It could be better but I gotr just about what I wanted from it.
That same evening I managed to capture some pelicans flying home to the mangroves to roost for the night.
I went back Sunday to try again and managed this one.
I think that will satisfy my sunset cravings for a while but, they are so magnificent here it’s hard not to fill a hard-drive with them.
