A Sense of Place (Part II)

The colourful sky is one of the most fascinating scenes to take a picture of. Quite often people start to shoot too early, resulting in a very dominating orange ball called the sun.

Then the sky and the sun are in balance and the clouds in the sky get an orange backlight.   The above picture was taken at roughly 22:00 hours at the end of May along the coast of Noordwijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. Right at the time... continue reading
