Call me crazy but I really love shooting sunsets and during blue hour in the winter month’s! The weather conditions are not always perfect however there is a certain peace about being outside at that time that appeals to me. The colors and the crispness of the air really are out of this world and it can be a heck of a lot of fun shooting images outside of the normal stuff one may capture. We finally had some fresh snow a few weeks ago and I was out shooting by the public boathouse which is right on the shores of Lake Champlain.
Usually in the Summer months this area is quite crowded which is why I prefer the colder months. This night was no exception as there were minimal people around and some decent color in the sky. After shooting some normal sunset images I decided to play around with shooting some out of focus images. These types of shots appeal to my love of abstract work and I really liked how the lights from the boathouse were in contrast to the moody skies of the sunset in this one. Just something a little different on a cold winters night!
