I was headed home the other day after a listing appointment. I was driving through amaranth on county road 11 and 4th line 15 minutes before sunset and this picture was taken about 3 minutes outside Shelburne. While I took many more as the sun, a tiny ball of orange, set behind the clouds, this one is my favorite.
I grew up in the city. The night sky I looked at as a child was mud-colored, though the skies as the sun set were awesome: “The pollution makes it pink!” we joked. Now I can see much more of the sky; it’s impeded only by trees and more trees towers, not tall buildings and smog. I like that.
A few weeks ago I was in the Melanchton and Amaranth areas coming back from showing country homes to a client from Toronto. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been practicing with my new camera. Getting a grip on my current confusion about aperture, shutter speed, and ISO can sometimes very funny thing :). But I think I’m getting better at it. What do you think?
