|Beautiful New England sunset photo from the Charles River in Dover, MA|
I don't think I have ever seen a sunrise or sunset that I did not like. In fact it is one of my preferred times to be on location and photograph Mother Nature at its best. No difference a couple nights ago when I made my was over to the Charles River in Dover Massachusetts. There is a bridge that spans the Charles River and I just arrived in time when the light was most dramatic and the cloudscape caught some fire. The snow banks on the side of the road were still high and I made my way one step at a time through the deep snow to the edge of the bridge. Ones I found my spot I quickly set up and started shooting the sunset magic in front of me. There was no time to change lenses and I figured the Canon 16-35mm on the 5D Mark IV was my best choice to capture the beautiful scenery any ways. I used a split Neutral Density filter to balance the light better between the darker foreground features in the landscape and river against the bright evening sunset light.
An aperture setting of f/22 provided a shutter speed of 1/3 of a second at ISO100. During post processing I adjusted shadows, highlights, brightness, contrast and color saturation before removing photo imperfection and sharpening the final image of "Now that the Light is Fading".
Good light and happy photo making!
