91 Clams

5DMKII + 17-40mm, f/9, ISO 50 (7 Exposures) Toned with Photomatix, Photoshop


One expensive Sunset!


Tonight like many other weekend afternoons, I found myself shooting into the sun, capturing the last of the daylight for December 3, 2011. What didn’t expect to find was a lovely blanch fine attached to my windshield.


Yes, I received a ticket from the good old city of Malibu for the amount of 91 dollars. Now the fine was ineluctable, I did not pay the parking machine. See, I didn’t notice the wooden parking machine dispenser till once I returning to the car. When I pulled in, I was just so excited to frame this shot and catch the last of the sun!


So the city of Malibu has won. Here's to thinking that a turnoff/park could be free for enjoyment, without paying the man.


As for the shot, I think it came out great! The orange-e-ness is pretty much the color the sky was tonight. Later in the evening is became this crisp dark orange that took the blanket sky to bed with black.


I hope everyone enjoys, except for the city Malibu. You have had enough fun on my part for one day!
