Sunsets

Thank you .@coolonespa

I always love photos taken of the wake if you are on a boat / ship and that sunset one is lovely!

.@Fossil that’s a lovely photo. I’m a sucker for mountain pics of any kind

Sunset from my Egyptian home. The only time the ‘Mountains of the Eastern Desert’ can be seen is at sunset as they are obliterated by heat haze during the day. Taken with an iPhone 6plus, nothing fancy.

Oh very impressive @the4ts I love that one. To some extent it looks like a watercolour wash painting….a great effect,

Mine’s a much simpler one (taken with an iPhone 7+). We’d just had a couple of boats pass us, so I was keen to capture ripples coming left to right and back to front, whilst the wake of our ship looked like someone had raked the sand. At least that’s what I saw

I found one of my favourites at last! This was taken in Leverburgh, Isle of Lewis. Handheld with a longish exposure hence it being not so sharp so I added a soft focus filter to help and liked the outcome.

what setting do you have it on for sunsets?

There is a specific setting in Scene Mode (SCN on the dial) that you can select for sunsets. I find it brilliant for bring out the oranges & reds in a sunrise/sunset.

Thank you. Not this one. It was taken with a Panasonic DMC-TZ70. I needed to use the zoom on it camera to bring the sun up that big.

Fantastic, I used to have a Lumix great cameras, just as a matter of interest … what setting do you have it on for sunsets?

Autumn sunsets, East Lothian

Just fabulous how the sunset is reflected in the clouds

I’m enjoying these sunsets, so will contribute a few of my own

I’m glad you’re enjoying it, there are some amazing photographs on this thread and thanks for adding yours. Nice shots and loved the first one with the “wonky” horizon….makes the shot for me.

Am very jealous!

You’re too kind. The beauty of digital photography is that you can keep plugging away at different exposures until you get the one you like, without it costing you a fortune in film. I won’t post all the others that I didn’t get right

Thank you .@coolonespa

I’ve tried so hard to get a shot of the sun like the one you posted but have always failed (can never quite get the exposure compensation right or clouds ruin it). Am very jealous!

Wow! .@GeminiJen What glorious, colourful clouds!
