Cloudy Colored Sunset, Lake Sam Rayburn TX
We’ve been getting pretty lucky with sunsets out at Lake Sam Rayburn recently. Two out of the last three trips have had nice sunsets. This photo is from our most recent trip. There were very few clouds in the sky when we left the house a couple of hours before sunset. Then all of a sudden these clouds rolled in about a half hour before sunset. I got a really cool time lapse out of it, but I’m a long way from processing it.
This is a single 1 second exposure. I used a three-stop soft-step graduated ND filter and a two-stop soft-step graduated ND filter to reduce the exposure above the foreground.
Critiques are always welcome. In fact, my dog Sala has already given a pretty rude critique of my foreground, as you can see in this previous photo.
