    Caribbean sunsets**one more

    A lot of times, mostly in couples sessions, people assume we got there and everything with the light and sky was magical and we started shooting and it was done in 15 minutes. No. At least with me if you want a sunset session we have to get there early, setup, and then wait for it. Once the sun is on the horizon yes, you only have about a good 10-15 minutes before it goes away (it moves pretty fast) but the lingering light can last for as much as 45 min. So sometimes when the session is over or the light isnt quiiiite right yet Ill snap a few for me. "test shots" allegedly :p 






    this one was on the drive home from an overcast day, I love em.


    The best of all? shot with the craptastic tamron 28-300 (the old one, the new one is fantastic)

    Nice stuff! Yeah, in the tropics the sun just sinks like a stone when it gets close to sunset. But I think clouds and often colors tend to be a lot more interesting in the tropics too, so there are definitely some big pluses to it too.

    More stunning stuff! Love the crepuscular rays. And the color depth on that last one is nothing short of stunning. :)

    Wow! Makes me want to get back to the Caribbean pronto!
    If I may ask, what camera has helped you produce these stunning colorful shots?
