Seascape at sunset

Photography tours are great. But they do not all need to be long, excotic or difficult. Yesterday I read this article on Fstoppers.com about how great photographs don’t always require you to travel long distances. Your backyard and your closest environment are also a great place to practice what you preach. To go out and shoot.

As I was setting up my camera, mesuring light and adding filters, the sun went below the horizon and lit up the sky with wonderful orange haze.

It was a nice little walk on a beach, and even though these shots are simple, I like the colours and the composition. But I really had to try and edit one of them in black and white, and I thing I might even like that one best of all the shots I took last night.
