Sunsets ๐ŸŒ‡๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ†

One of my favorite photographic subjects is nature, in all its possible expressions, even if the most extraordinary natural spectacle is undoubtedly a sunset, with its fleeting explosion of colours. The reflections of the sun on the water make every end of the day even more exciting, with combinations of contrasting nuances and compositions of shapes and shadows. What I find particularly attractive in my photographic chase of sunsets is the unpredictability of the final result. You never know how, even for a very familiar sight, it will come through in the incandescent and unexpected brightness of a sunset.

The shimmering light of a sunset against the skyline of a city can provide dramatic effects and turn a familiar outline into a unique image. As a sunset chaser i try to find spots in familiar places where a sunset can produce some interesting colours and shapes. London and its river are stimulating places for my quest at the last hours of light during the day, with all kinds of skyscrapers and old building silhouettes. Berlin and its westward-looking Brandenburg Gate is the perfect backdrop for stunning sunset shots too.

Most of my sunset pictures are improvised but I have learned to start planning and organising for a sunset photo shoot, for example knowing in advance at what what time and what the weather will be like at sunset, Once you have undertaken this path, initially out of curiosity, you will be amazed to start discovering there is a whole world of paraphernalia linked to getting information about the sunlight in a particular location and. How to get the best out of it with your camera or with your smartphone. One of the early discoveries I made is that around sunset time there is a golden hour, with red/yellow light, and a blue hour, with darker and blueish nuances.
