Autumn Sunsets

I love Autumn. Besides tree leaves exploding into rich yellows, oranges and reds, Autumn also brings an earlier sunset. I can see the sunset and still be home in time for dinner.

Two gorgeous sunsets from Shoreline Park but the placement of the biking/hiking route is amiss. In the top photo, it’s a bit too far left, and almost seems like a distraction. It catches your eye but leads you nowhere. In the bottom photo, the bike trail is more dominant. If it headed straight into the sunset, that would have been ideal. Instead, the trail flows right, while the sunset is on the left, leaving a feeling of dissonance.

Hopefully, I can re-work this again next week. Don’t be so focused on exposure that you get the composition wrong.
