This week I tried to capture the beauty of this sunset, but it was not easy.I even went to the attic to have a better view.

Enjoy other views of the sky on today's Sky Watch, hosted by Tom at Wiggers World

Beautiful, beautiful Sky Watch photos! Thanks for making the trip to the attic.

I greatly admire the photograph of the windmills you have in your blog header. Most attractive! It creates in me a strong desire to visit the Netherlands.

Hello,

Thank you for your visit and comment on my SWF.

Yours is a great series of images showing the progression of sunset to nightfall-just fascinating.

I also found your photo, drawings, and text on the windmills and drainage systems to be very informative--thank you!

I will return to read and view more of your blog.

You caught three beautiful shots. Lovely sunset photos.

And I've just proved either that I can't count, or that my fingers take over from my brain!
I'm sorry, I meant to compliment you on all FOUR of the photos!

Pretty one for SWF! Which reminds me the quote... "we all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon".... Mine's up too hope you can drop by. Happy Weekend!

Thanks for your visit to my blog, Wil. The Big Dam Bridge bed is fourteen (14) feet wide, and I'm sure that riding a bicycle across would be most safe up there. Think of the view! I'm planning to walk across in the fall. I'll let you know how the experience goes. (I'll be 74 years old in September.)

Friendly skies, nothing threatening -we seem to be in a turbulent phase.
All through May we had gentle skies.

Sunsets are difficult to photograph but you have done pretty well. Position the horizon lower than centre and try Shooting at a variety of exposures - if you let your camera decide what shutter length to shoot at you’re likely to get a shot that doesn’t really capture the beauty of the light. Quite often the shot will be under exposed because the sky is still reasonably light.

Instead of relying upon the camera’s auto mode a sunset is an ideal time to switch your camera into aperture or shutter priority mode and to take a variety of shots at different exposures.

The great thing about sunsets and sunrises is that there is no one ‘right’ exposure and that you can get stunning results using a variety of them. Also keep in mind that different exposures (aperture and shutter speeds) will produce a variety of different results so it’s worth taking more than just a few shots - the key is to experiment.

I tend to switch into shutter priority mode and start with a relatively quick shutter speed and then slowly work down to slower ones. Good luck and best wishes Kev
