Sunset Season - 5/20
As the rainy season arrives in Florida so does "sunset season" for photographers. There's a few things that seem to make a better sunset photo this time of year; Clouds that add color and depth to the sky at sunset, less wind to ripple the water surface making for terrific reflections, and later sunsets so there's time to get to a good location. Sometimes I like to shoot sunsets with a telephoto lens and this can cause a serious hazard to the eye, like staring at the sun with a telescope. NOT recommended! I wait 'til the sun is low and dimmer, then aim with my eye held away from the viewfinder. I use the LCD display to adjust composition and exposure, then shoot until I get a good result.
