Smoky skies bring amazing sunsets

Right now and for the past couple days sunsets and even sun rises have been red here in the Denver area. These colors are due to smoke from out of state fires being blown in by the wind.

If you are in the Colorado area, give a look at the skies during sunset or sunrise. If things are just right, the colors are amazing.

Water Color

Got to the lake mid afternoon today and lighting was harsh. I was thinking of shooting a time lapse but could not find a suitable spot to do so until I ran across this scene. By the time I started the shutter the light had started to fade, this was about 8pm. So I decided to just shoot a couple stills.

The reflection here really caught my eye but the shore line of the lake was not working to my advantage. I walked up and down rotated the camera and then finally settled on this composition and location.

Shot using a circular polarizer and Lee 2 stop hard GND filter. I ended up underexposing the raw file and needed to bring it back up in post.
