Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

I regularly visit the beaches of Cape Cod Bayfor sunset photography. Needless to say sunsets never disappoint here. No difference on one of my latest trips where I photographed at Skaket Beach. This was a new beach and it took a bit of time and exploring before settling on a pleasing composition. I finally succeeded when I found some nice beach grass leading into the picture. While the sun was nearing the horizon colors in the sky exploded. A saturated blue with clouds colored in pink and orange dominated the sky. The spectacle was beautifully reflected in the Cape Cod Bay and beach. I used a split ND filter to balance the bright sunset sky with the darker foreground directly in front of me. Aperture setting was f/14 providing a shutter speed of a second at ISO100. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast, color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Cape Cod photography image of
Day Ends.

Good light and happy photo making!

That night, there was another expected and exciting twist: The super moon phenomena was expected in Boston. A super moon is known as a ... Learn More.

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

The Boston Charles River is famous for its stunning views of Beacon Hill and the Back Bay skyline. Many local and travel photographers are drawn to this hot spot in Cambridge. I am no different and I stop by Memorial Drive regularly, chasing the light for my next Pictures of Boston galleries addition. During my last Boston photo tour I arrived well before sunset and people in sailboats, kayaks, small motor boats and on paddle boats were still enjoying a beautiful summer day on the waters.

I set up on memorial Drive, not far from the Massachusetts Avenue bridge, for stunning views of the familiar Boston architecture and the new Millennium Tower at downtown crossing. Known as Millie, the building is a newcomer in the Boston cityscape and is the third Tallest Skyscraper in Boston. I incorporated sailboats and the skyline reflections as foreground features while the main subject of the Boston skyline was struck by the last light of the day, painting the city in warm hues. Aperture was set to f/11 resulting in an exposure time of 1/50 of a second at ISO200. A hand-held split neutral density filter balanced the darker Charles River scenery and skyline against the brighter sunset sky.

During post processing I followed my my routine workflow removing dust spots and imperfections, adjusting lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Charles River skyline photography image Charles River Sailboats with Boston Millennium Tower.

Cape Cod Stage Harbor Lighthouse Photography By Juergen Roth

March 7th, 2023

Cape Cod Stage Harbor Lighthouse Photography By Juergen Roth

For this Stage Harbor lighthouse photograph I arrived late at Harding's beach parking lot; the sun was already setting. I immediately was side tracked by a hand full of kite surfers. It was a struggle to freeze the surfers because of their fast speed and my camera's low shutter speed. I adjusted my camera ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds and continued shooting. Although there was some waste produced in the end I got the shots of the Nantucket Sound kite surfers hat I was hoping for. Meanwhile the tide was coming in strong and I was a little worried about getting back in the dark after shooting the lighthouse. Nonetheless .... continued in my nature photography blog Where in the World is Juergen?.
