Great sunset today after a gloomy, cloudy start. Really felt like an attempt by nature to warm up the rapidly coming coldness soon to envelop us for several weeks. Thought I’d practice a bit using my off-camera flash to lighten up the harsh shadows created by the strong sunlight, and see how all that would process out as black and white. Have to work faster now; as the sun approaches the horizon it quickly sets within just a few minutes. Not like the summer sun that takes its own sweet time sliding below the sky’s edge.
