Two Sunsets over Candlewood Lake

Regarding photography, a friend once casually remarked, “Sunsets get boring after a while. They all end up looking the same.” Well, sometimes you capture one or two that are especially pretty.

You can see the subtle arc of diurnal motion in the movement of this long exposure. Again, Mars and Saturn are the brightest.

Long Exposure of the Evening Sky

This is a dark evening sky in Connecticut that appears much lighter due to a 4.3 second exposure at ISO 1600 and f/1.4. It is strange to see the stars in a blue sky.
