Week 30 good to WOW SOOC Sunset

I really look forward to seeing everyone's sunsets which is probably what I will do all morning even though I have over due library books, camping laundry, and homework for my "Finding Your Eye" class to do.  I can catch up on that all tomorrow, right?

I do only have two photos to share today.  I could narrow it down to one, but I find it interesting how changing the ISO changed the shot (moving 20 feet and the sun moving lower down also had a play in it).

1/125    f/16    50 mm    ISO 100  
1/125    f/16   50 mm    ISO 400
I wanted to play with shutter speeds and change lenses, but that sun went down fast!  I had 3 minutes between my first shot when we got to where we could see the sunset to my last shot where the sun is behind those trees.  I was changing settings as I ran to get a better view.  Next time we'll eat dinner a little faster!

Have fun seeing all the other sunsets over at Jill's blog!  I hope to do so; I think the boys can do the laundry.

What a beautifuk sunset. I'm not sure I'd do anything to these because they are so pretty SOOC. Still, can't wait to see what you do with them!

Beautiful! Love how you got a little sun flare in that first one.

Isn't it crazy how you don't seem to notice how quickly the sun sets until you want to photograph it? At least it was for me! Haha The sunflare in your photos are awesome! Great captures!
