This is not a technique I use often but sometimes it can look a little more interesting than the usual sharpness. Besides, Shooting like this is the exact opposite of what I do daily, it’s not natural.
The other nigh sunset was perfect for photographers. Now I don’t know what to do with the extra images. So I took 3 at random, just cropped them, and here they are.
There’s a time and a place for Photoshop / Lightroom. This wasn’t one of them. I would only make work for myself.
When you are waiting for the sun to set, and it’s cold and windy you need to keep moving. So I shot these and the color was not half bad.
Two shots of bones around sunset.
The great thing here, you can wait 5 minutes and take another shot, it will look different.
Photographs of waves never turn out the same as what I saw in my head. Beautiful in person, boring in images. Mix in a little setting sun and cold wind…a bit more interesting.

This being civil war era I have to assume the carving wasn’t done in New England as was the custom. The original Confederate States flag was here also.
