Fun Photo Friday


Another spectacular sunset here as seen from the backyard of Casa Wicker.  This one occurred on Saturday, March 16.

You’ll notice one of the photographs does not focus on the actual sunset, but rather the clouds colored by that sunset.  These particular clouds were almost 90° off from the direction of the sunset, very nearly due north of us.

The lesson?  Don’t just get the spectacular colors of that gorgeous sunset.  Hunt around for some clouds that are also affected by those brilliant sunset colors.

Another lesson is on orientation.  Landscape orientation can look interesting, but it’s overdone and not even usually the best choice.

Landscape Orientations can be Nice, but . . .

More often than not, the underused portrait orientation can lend added, unexpected drama to the same scene:
