“Autumn Sunset” – Glasgow, Ontario
“Each time I see a beautiful sunset or sunrise, I have to pinch myself because I can’t believe that I’m awake and not dreaming.”
― Anthony T. Hincks
Every now and then, you just have to pull over, enjoy, and take a picture.
In this case, I was returning from closing down our camper for the season, it was later in the day and I spent about fifteen minutes driving west, into a blazing sunset. It was beautiful and painfully bright, yet it was just that.
That is, until we drove through the intersection of the hamlet of Glasgow, just north and east of my home. I simply had to stop and try to make a photo of this beautiful scene. It’s a real challenge to get it close to what the eye sees and the light changes very quickly. Fortunately, I’m very familiar with my camera and what it can and can’t do, having experienced many failures. This time I knew exactly what settings were required and snapped a few bracketed frames just to be sure. Though it’s hard to capture exactly what my eye saw, this is as close an approximation as I could have hoped for.

What a beautiful sunset. If only I had my camera with me on the way to work, as I see so many amazing sunrises.
Love your post! 🤗

Beautiful exposure under tricky condition.
Thank you David.
You’re right, everything has to be just right to get this photo, and I know how fast the sun goes down before you get your perfect shot. This is your perfect shot. Very beautiful!
You’re welcome, Ed!

Cheers & All the best.

Thank you Anthony
Good chat about the challenge of capturing what the eye sees.
I’m training myself to take a few bracketed stabs at it, then put the camera down and actually see what is before me..
I love trying to capture it all; the light, the mood, the subject.
But there’s nothing like being there.
That is spectacular! Thanks for dropping by my blog and liking it
