Sunsets in Venice can be glorious. I really love how the last rays of orange sunlight shimmer and dance across the waters of the blue lagoon. Alas, I do not live in Venice. Instead of waiting for the next opportunity to travel overseas, I discovered that I can still refine my photographic skills by incorporating photography into my daily routines.
Instead of going out for lunch, I take a short walk with the camera in tow. Most of the time, nothing interesting happens. But, I sometimes encounter interesting birds and planes. If the weather is cloudy, I experiment with taking photos of clouds. During the winter, night comes early, so I test out sunset, night and long exposure photographs. All good practice in anticipation of the next trip.
