Day 277 – Both ends of the day

Today I got to take photos of both ends of the day – morning light (sunrise – well almost) and sunset. All these photos were taken within 20 minutes off my home – and I am so luck I get to live in such a wonderful place …. so many people don;t appreciate their local area, I am honored to share mine.

The above two shots were taken at almost the same spot – it is amazing to see how much difference taking one small step sideways effects the light shining into the camera. I prefer the 2nd shot as it shows the warmth of the early morning sun and it is what drew me to capture the moment in the first place.

The low position of the sun create some lovely vibrant colours on the damp leaves and I was lucky enough to capture a wild deer – I only had a 17-70mm lens on me, so I took the shot and have cropped in closer to create the image that I wanted.

At the other end of the day I went to the coast and captured the sun settings – hand holding so I kept the ISO high and a shallow depth of field – I did not want to capture the details more the silhouette of the landscape and the colours of the sky.

It is amazing how quickly the light drops and how soon it disappears … but I loved this silhouette against the evening sky.
