It has been terribly gray and foggy for about two weeks or so. Don’t get me wrong, the frost on the trees looked really cool, but I really missed the sun.

It finally came out yesterday, so last night, my husband and I went out on a spur of the moment sunset seeking drive. We found a nifty spot on Lake Butte des Morts.

I don’t normally take sunset photos, but I’m really glad we were able to get out. I also ditched the tripod last night, and my horizons are straighter than they are when I use one, and I have more freedom to switch between horizontal and vertical shots. I think I’m going to ditch it from now on.

I took both my Nikon D5200 and Nikon D3200 so I wouldn’t have to switch lenses back and forth. And it was great. I love taking close up shots, and open scenery, but I hate switching lenses.

Here are a few of my favorite photos.

The sun just above the horizon lighting up this dock.

I’m not sure which one of these two photos below I like better. What do you guys think?

On our way home, we stopped on the side of the road, for a quick second to take a photo of a few trees that I saw on our way out.

One thought on “Sunset Jan. 9, 2021

  1. In answer to the question about which one of the two photos I like better, I would say the second one that shows more of the wood pylons as I get a better idea of the foreground and there is more interest on the bottom of the photo across the negative space gap from the sunset. But, that is just my opinion.

    I do get jealous of the winter-scapes as that is not an option for me where I live.
