With the intention of getting some great sunset photos over the lake, it’s fun to find other things, things you weren’t really expecting to photograph, to make interesting compositions.
I got to the lake a little late and missed the sun actually setting. Timing is crucial! Anyways, there were other interesting things to go along with the colorful sky. In this image, I chose to silhouette the fisherman and show the reflecting colors of the sky on the water. I probably should have gotten this guys’ permission to photograph him, but he was kind of busy and it’s not like I had a 400mm zoom lens pointed at him.
