Sunset from the Patio

Uploaded: July 12, 2016 | Entered: July 15, 2016 10:01:12


My wife was driving home after work travelling the New Jersey Turnpike. Late afternoon sunsets are frequently a wonder and, on this day, she was able to call and tell me to check the sky behind our home. Needless to say, I took a number of images from different locations on the common property out from our patio, varying exposures.

This is one of the two best and was entered in a club competition. When another member saw the picture, he exclaimed that he'd shot pictures of ths same sunset from his home, more than eight miles separated from mine.

Exposure Info.: f/7.1, 1/60 sec, ISO 800, FL - 26 mm, polarized
