Alberta Sunset: A Series … Pulse of a Sunset


I am seriously hung up on this sunset.

A little further down the highway (see my last two posts) we passed Edmonton International Airport (though I wasn’t aware of it at the time). I just kept snapping away trying to keep as much in focus as I could and hoping that the images reflected some of the incredible drama I was seeing reflected in the sky.

It wasn’t until a few days ago when I was editing that I noticed the tail-end of aircraft against the solar inferno. What a bonus that was! And it doesn’t bother me one bit that this image appears slightly out of focus. Its shimmer only underscores the incredible heat of the day that was and, perhaps, the agitated pulse, if you will, of the rapidly descending sun.

Just for the record, I use a Nikon D7000 with autofocus/manual zoom, and I did not mess with the digital colour settings while editing any of the sunset photos in this series. This is totally Mother Nature’s handiwork.

What a gal!

Thanks for visiting …

Dorothy 🙂
