Sunset

Three-quarters of an hour before sunset

Yesterday, hopefully, to relieve the humidity and high temperature, we traveled down to Gooseberry island, hopefully, that the weather would be more comfortable by the ocean. Yes, the temperature was in the mid-70s with a pleasant breeze blowing. It was getting on towards sunset, and I decided to set up my camera to photograph the event and utilized the Pluto Trigger automatically to take an image every five minutes, to give me a series of images showing the changes in the sky as the sun set in the west.

My equipment included the Nikon D 810, Rokinon 24 mm f/1.4 lens set at f/14, on an Induro tripod and the Pluto Trigger http://www.plutotrigger.com?afmc=8d.

After I set up my equipment and took some test shots, I set the camera on aperture priority, F/14, I SO 200, and a -1 1/3 EV. Utilizing the Pluto trigger app on my iPad and press start, I then sat in my chair and watched

the unfolding sunset before me with the multiple changes in the color of the clouds and the sky. I photograph from about three-quarters of an hour before sunset to approximately 30 minutes after sunset. Many people see the color immediately after the sun sets, take a snapshot and leave therefore missing sometimes the best colors
