As much as I complaint to myself about the cold in Winter I really do love shooting sunsets in the cold during blue hour! The air is crisp and it adds a certain feeling to the image for me that is hard to describe. It has been below zero cold here as of late so I have not been out shooting much but this image I made a few weeks ago with the last bits of color showing during the sunset. I have been fascinated with silhouette shots recently and on the waterfront here in Burlington there are plenty of these barge poles around to provide a nice foreground to the scene!
The cloud formations over the past month or so have just been terrible and I think good clouds can really add drama to a scene like this. Finally after waiting for quite some time the clouds broke a bit on this night and I was able to get some decent sunset images. Kept it simple here with a simple foreground and some really nice color in the sky. I love the blue coloring at this time…I think it adds a nice accent to everything else going on in the scene!
