“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.” This especially beautiful sunset was brought to my attention shortly after 7 p.m. and was already a wealth of reds, oranges, and golds by the time I got out to Kresge with a Nikon D800 and 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. As someone who has only been shooting for a few months, my thought process is usually something along the lines of “Ahh! Colors! Button!” and most of my photos accordingly consisted of a visible foreground and blown out sky or a reasonable exposure of the sky replete with black landscape devoid of detail. Sunsets can be difficult to capture since the most radiant colors tend to last only 20-30 minutes, and this one was no different.
