Night's A-Fallin'

Night's A-Fallin'

I made this image a couple of weeks ago. Contrary to the title, the sunset actually led to a spectacular blue hour but I like the ominous tones so much that I left well enough alone.

Photo Notes
1 second at f/22, ISO 200 on a Nikon D300 + Tokina 11-16. I did very little by way of post processing – just applied a teeny bit of tone mapping to bring out the richness in the sky and reflections. IMO, the key to getting this shot was the rubber boots. They allowed me to set up in the middle of the creek. 😉

    • Thanks, Karen! I was drawn to this image for the dark, dark tones that fringe the bright orange.
