Ice Cream Colors

I had a phenomenal evening at Natural Bridges State Park the other night. I had taken a nap just prior to the sunset and was a little groggy to say the least. But I somehow managed to get down to the water just in time for one of the best sunsets there I have ever seen. Most of the colors seen here are close to accurate and I did my best not to saturate the already over the top colors. I did some color temperature work to warm it up to the colors i remembered seeing. The wet sand gave me so much reflection and lit the rock nicely.

 

I dressed for wet feet and cold weather so after the sun set i was very comfy in my warm jacket and gloves. The wide angle 10-22 has been gathering dust for most of the year but I decided to break it out and give it a go. The zoomed in part of the range was almost distortion free and I left it there for most of the shots. My tripod got a little wet and sandy but I did not care. I used the shutter release to fire the shutter and let go when a wave came to close, stranding the camera a few feet from me where I could control what was happening. I worked out fine and my trust grew stronger with each shot. I did not expect the colors I got and made so many pictures, it was hard to leave any out.
