SOOC Saturday ~ Colorful evening skies

Looking out my kitchen window, while shelling some shrimp for dinner I saw beautiful reds, purples, orange coming from the west. Such a lovely sunset, I couldn't miss capturing it with my camera.....

Mt Woodson in the eve

In this one above, you can see Mt Woodson. An upscale area of town with private golf courses and a castle on the grounds.

Silohuette of Mexican Sage

This one, I got down low behind some Mexican Sage in our front yard to capture the sunset behind it.

All of these were taken SOOC, straight-out-of-camera. Taken with my Nikon D80, 70mm, lowest aperture on this lens 4.5 to allow more light, set on very vivid setting, speed 1/30. I always go with a faster speed then the metering indicates when capturing sunsets so that I can get more vivid color. With a slower speed you get a brighter picture which isn't as dramatic. And, no flash, of course, or you wouldn't get the silhouettes, which I love to capture.

Sharing with SOOC over at Slurping Life. Check it out for more great SOOCs!
