A6300 w/Sigma 16mm f/1.4 and Sony 70-300mm G (Sunset)
8

I spent the weekend in Petoskey, Michigan. We had wonderful weather but there was still a foot of snow on the ground and Boyne Mt ski area was still open. The bay in the photos is still ice / snow covered.

We stayed at Stafford's Perry Hotel and our room was on the 4th floor over looking the water (point where photos were taken from). I call our room the Sunset Suite.

Lovely images William. The 2nd and 3rd are my favourites. That Sigma 16mm sure looks like a sweet lens.

Hope you don’t mind but I’ve been assembling a slideshow of a 2015 trip in Northern Australia and two sunset photos I took seem so remote from Michigan and thought I’d share too. They were taken at an overnight rest stop at Brunette Downs on the road between Barkly Roadhouse and Cape Crawford, in the Northern Territory. Just about as remote as you can get from towns and people. We were on a three month caravan trip across the Top End. There’s something about a fire and warm sunset...

Very cool William,

Amazing sky colors and sunset colors - something I'm not used to - combining the warmth of a sunset with the cold blues of winter and snow - haven't gotten to witness that for about 40 years now!

Lovely shots - and neat to see the two perspectives of the big 300mm telephoto sunset vs the 16mm wide scope.

Thanks for joining the thread.  I like both of your images but like the windmill best.

Thanks

Justin it was just a fun experiment to shoot the sunset with wide and long lenses (lots of fun).

Thanks for comments.

Sunset / fading light is an interesting time to shoot.
