Thinking about tomorrow — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 50 | 7 Bracketed Exposures

Here’s my sunset shot from yesterday—I was out for an evening of dining and drinks in Atlantic City with friends celebrating a birthday and was unable to post. A good time was had by all.

This was taken on Cedar Run Dock Road and I’ve composed a photograph from this very location before. While the colors weren’t as explosive as they’ve been other times this winter, the cloud definition was intricate and brooding, teasing topside color that was just out of reach. With about 20% less cloud cover and the sun would have gotten below the cloud deck and painted the sky with its gifted hand. Alas it wasn’t meant to be.

I opted to cross process this image, which is already a composite of 7 bracketed exposures, smoothing out the image with a calming blue tone. It more fit the mood of the blue-grey day I was seeing out there on the marsh. Snow is coming and the sky was letting us know.
