Watching The Setting Sun

It seems the trend has been me doing sunset photos on a Friday. That is the assumption that there is a weekend approaching. Sadly I am in Chicago and I am doing a 9 day straight without a break on an extended project. On the bright side once that is done I’m off to my happy place, Thailand!

I am going to guess that the pier with the cover on it is for viewing the Caloosahatchee River. There were lots of people coming and going to watch the sun set. Lots of selfies being taken and lots of cell phones taking pictures. For my purposes it was reflecting the sunset nicely and worked to balance things out.

To be honest, I have no idea what I did to get the look. I think it’s plain now that what you see isn’t what I photographed. It’s there as I don’t fundamentally alter the image. What you see was basically what was before me. The finished product is just me going I like this here and that there. How it turns out is what I want it to be.

I agree with the photographer, the sunset is a great way to end the business week. What’s not to love in the photo? I am sure most sunsets in the US are spectacular since we all share the sky. I always think of the rhyme about the skies. Red skies at night, sailors delight. Should be good news for fishing in the morn. Red skies at dawn, sailors be warned. Rain for the day. Not a good day to go boating or fishing. Being this close to the River and the Gulf, I am sure many of us think this rhyme often. I enjoyed the photo and kept my copy.
