Landscape Photography Episode 22
In this episode I to there and then back again:
It is almost impossible to know how the sky is going to look at sunset. I set out with quite high hopes but when I kinda got to where I thought that I would stay to photograph the sunset the clouds kept moving away from me. The light was really nice though. So I took a few pictures at the field where I first planned to shoot.
But I knew that it would not work for sunset so I packed up again and had to make a decision on were to go. East or west. The east was were I came from, it had some good cloud formations dwelling on the horizon. The west also had some nice clouds but I could not really see beyond the trees so I thought that there might actually be to much clouds there.
I made the decision to go east, backtracking to a place called Ösan. When I got to Ösan I had to hurry a bit to the location because the sun was setting quite soon. Arriving at the location the clouds were really pretty. I managed to set up the camera take a few test shots. Knowing that I had to use a long exposure I screwed that on quickly and managed to take two long exposures as well before the color had vanished from the clouds.
When the color was gone I hoped for a second wave to come after the sun had set. But unfortunately it did not come. It just became bluer and bluer. Not what I was hoping. Even though the second wave never came I was still satisfied knowing I had gotten at least one and maybe two good pictures this evening. One good picture is good, more than that is really good.
