Autumn Sunset

>> Wednesday, October 6, 2010

As I arrived home about a week ago, I was greeted by this incredible sunset.  It looked like the sky was on fire, or else like something demonic.  Such intensity!  Using some of the new skills I garnered from my Adirondack photography trip, I set up the tripod and shot a few pictures just before the amazing light disappeared.  And yippee!  They actually turned out!  You can see the progression from fiery gold, to deep rose and plum.

I think I shot these the same night Adirondack Naturalist blogger Ellen shot her sunset photos, seen here. Amazing that the sunset looked awfully similar way up in Newcomb, New York, which is more than 3 hours drive from my humble abode. So often we have very different weather in the Syracuse area from the Adirondack Park, (which generally means I leave bright sun and enter gloomy clouds and rain every time I hike in the Adirondacks - that's the way my luck always seems to run).  But these clouds I think were harbingers of the huge rain system that stretched along much of the East Coast, so Ellen and I were looking at similar sunsets that night.

Wow! Just amazing! So many photos of sunsets just don't do the colors justice, but these are spectacular. Thanks for posting them.

Wow! what a gorgeous sunset. You only see something like that once a year or so (if you're lucky!). Thank heaven for digital cameras. They sure make capturing a view like this a lot easter.

I continue to be impressed & envious of your photographic talent. I would LOVE to further my own knowledge (which is, thus far, mostly just trial & error tinkering) - what would you suggest as a way to educate myself? I don't have a DSLR camera - just a higher end point & shoot. Please be my photography guru!

I was just about to post that it looked like the same sunset I saw when I finished your post and you said the same thing! How nice to think we were both gazing at the sky at the same moment - and thought to record it "on film". :)
