It can be pretty darn magical to take a stroll around Calf Pasture beach as the sun sets and the colorful time following.
Some people, however, don’t believe in magic. Recognize I am not a photographer but I can share approaches I have used to capture the more colorful or unusual shots.
I have mentioned how different it is to me to see the world through a camera lens. During the colors of sunrise and sunset this could not be more true.
Using a telephoto lens provides you with the most opportunity to focus in on an object or colors far away. By doing so it limits your view to the most colorful aspects and as such once captured in a photo, the observer envisions a full sky with those colors. In reality it may only be a small piece of the sky.
For the inquiring minds, I share how it’s done.
As for myself, I prefer to believe in magic. 🙂
If you’re looking for a warm bit to eat nearby, I highly recommend Mecha Noodle. I take out and drive up to the beach in winter to watch the sunset. They have locations in Stamford, Norwalk and Fairfield.
