A Great Place To Watch Sunsets
Living on the east coast of Florida, we can see some amazing sunrises.
Only problem is, I'm not much for getting up before dawn. Sunsets are more my speed.
To see good ones, Lovely Wife and I head across the Melbourne Causeway to Melbourne Beach, Florida. The two pictures above were taken at Rykman Park in Melbourne Beach. From this location we can watch the sunset over the Indian River Lagoon, our section of the intracostal waterway.
These two shots were taken late June 2006, the day after I bought my Nikon D70s. Wanted to break it in on a nice sunset. God supplied a really nice one.
The two photos were taken about 50 yards apart, each standing on one side or the other of the pier. That's the same pier in both photos. The first one was while the sun was still up, and I tried to approximate the Orton process in Photoshop Elements, and the second one is just a straight shot of the pastel colors after the sun had gone down. Someone was kind enough to mosey by in a sailboat for that second photo.
