Thank you for the comments about my sunrise picture yesterday. (Sidenote: I’m happy to report that I’ve calmed down a bit since then.) Terry over at Perspectives On… reminded me in her comment that fortunately we have two tries a day to photograph, so I went out again last night and tried the sunset. Then, I went out this morning again. Norm, from http://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com suggested putting a wider angle lens on, and metering on the sky instead of the foreground. I think those two tips helped. I feel better about these shots than the dawn shot yesterday, but I really really really need to learn a better editing program than iPhoto. There’s only so much I can do with it. I’m excited to re-edit these once I start tackling the ins and outs of Lightroom. I shot them in RAW so it will be fun to see how they transform.
I’m off to take Sarah Jane and one of her also-December-born besties shopping so they can spend their birthday money. Hope day two of the new year is bringing about growth and deeper joy to all of you. 🙂
(I think clicking on the photo gives you a better view of the shot, btw)
