i live for days like today

It feels like once or twice every winter, Mother Nature pulls out all the stops and beams us a sunset to get us through the cold gray days ahead. This evening was one of those evenings. While heading home, I realized that the cloud patterns were about right for a nice end of the day – if there weren’t any clouds on the horizon (which I was not able to see). Grabbed the gear anyway, headed down to the water, waited a bit, and this is what I saw.

Photog Notes
ISO 200, 6 seconds, f/19 on a Nikon D300 + Tokina 11-16 at 11 mm. To combat the high dynamic range, I applied a 2-stop (soft edge) graduated filter at the time of the exposure. In processing, I reduced the saturation a bit to more accurately reflect the tones and light that I witnessed tonight.
