A Pretty Sunset

I spent the day out near St. Jacobs, Ontario driving around and photographing. On my way home, since it had been such a nice day, I decided to stop in at Cootes Bay and wait for sunset. As usual I was not disappointed!

Suffering for my Art!

I stood out in the pouring rain this evening hoping the sky would light up, and Mother Nature did not disappoint!

A Chilly Sunset

I did a brief foray down to Coots Bay late this afternoon to catch the sunset. The wind was pretty strong and a 2 minute exposure made for some nice cloud movement!

Normally when I head to Cootes Bay it is to photograph stunning sunsets. 

Well tonight was a wee bit different. A longer exposure and hardly any wind made the protected bay pretty calm. Since there was not much colour to speak of, I decided to play a bit in Silver Efex’s Pro, an add on I have for Lightroom. I love this program as it gives me so much control over all the different pieces of the image.

This evening after dinner I was watching the cloud formations to the west and I had a notion we might be in for a pretty sunset so my wife and I headed to my favourite spot in Hamilton for sunsets, Cootes Bay. And once again Mother Nature did not disappoint!
