A West Vancouver Fall Sunset

Here is a slightly long photoessay showing a sunset I stumbled upon recently in West Vancouver. All these shots were made in Manual Mode. The first shot was done from an inital vantage point setting the exposure according to the light meter. I began to experiment with the exposure and then moved around to achieve better lighting and even special effects. The last photo shows how framing the subject with darkness can create a mood and focus of view. I like the various twigs, etc. that point to the sunset as if to say, “Look how beautiful it is.”

I stopped very early one morning at the Hollyburn Club in West Vancouver. It was very cold, icy and slippery, but, I managed to get up on one of the decks (I am a member, so it was OK) and took these shots.
