| p.1 #1 · Crepuscular rays, coming and going |
I took my annual business trip to Florida a couple weeks ago an found some new locations, but didn't have particularly good sunrise and sunset conditions, so I'll probably get more macros and birds out of this trip than landscapes. The two shots below are from one evening with a cloudless sky that didn't appear likely to produce anything interesting. To hedge my bets I had found spots on both sides of the north-south road in case the earth shadow show was better than the sun side. As it happens, about 10 minutes after sunset a good crepuscular ray show developed, with the rays radiating outward from the sun below the horizon and converging again at the anti-solar point in the Belt of Venus on the other side. They weren't the strongest rays, but had a really pretty color, which I tried to draw out in these shots. I can't recall a time I have seen unbroken rays extending across the entire sky, so that kind of makes up for the otherwise unremarkable sunsets.
