Sunset, Northern Wisconsin

I was sitting at home one night and noticed the sun getting lower in the sky and casting a very warm glow.  I immediately took off for the nearest spot to effectively capture it, the nearby Boom Lake.  In this shot I used center metering and exposed for the sun’s reflection in the water.  I also cranked up the color temp in manual mode to exaggerate the warmness.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Growth

Northern lights

Taken in Rhinelander, WI USA on 7/14/12. Rhinelander is at almost exactly 45° N latitude. The biggest problem i had was at the peak, the lights were so vivid overexposed. Also, there wasnt a ton of texture. But this one turned out pretty good. My main photography site is at http://www.chiaroscurophoto.com
