Orange Sunset on October 11th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

It’s been a month since this photo was taken and I still wish I could have seen it at one of my usual sunset viewing locations. Even more so since I had a hunch that that evening’s sunset would be on the more intense side. That afternoon, the clouds had that hazy quality to them that I’ve begun to assciciate with vibrant and intense sunsets. In the evening, I looked out the kitchen window just before sunset and was simultaneously elated and disappointed with what I saw. So I grabbed my camera and rushed outside to the backyard to photograph whatever I could. I’m thankful I was able to capture something, at least. It always becomes a little bit more difficult for me to go sunset chasing when the days get shorter and shorter. Winter hasn’t even begun yet and here I am missing those long, warm, summer nights.

A vibrant sunset at the end of August. Wow, this one was a stunner! These are the kinds of sunsets I look forward to the most, where the sky actually looks like it’s on fire. Whenever I’m done taking photos, I can’t wait to load them up on to my laptop for editing. I’m going to miss sunsets like these once winter rolls around.

Sunset on August 13th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

This was one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve seen in a while. We were lucky enough to find an empty bench to sit on to do some sunset watching. Everything about this sunset was gorgeous, from the clouds directly above the setting sun to the clouds over by the city’s skyline. The cloud cover approaching the city almost reminded me of a wave. Not only that but the clouds’ colours went from orange to yellow to pink to purple. Even with all the haziness in the atmosphere, we were able to see the moon peeking through as well. This sunset kept transforming and had me photographing everything lest I miss something.

Purple Twilight at Rouge River on August 8th, 2021.

The sunset on this night was definitely a conversation starter but what follows a beautiful sunset sometimes is a beautiful twilight. The purple sky combined with the mist rising from the horizon was such a sight to see. I couldn’t help but feel it was the perfect end to the day.

Red Sunset at Rouge River on August 8th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Photographing an intense sunset at Rouge River has always been on my photography bucket list. I’m so glad I was lucky enough to be able to photograph one. After a hazy day, I had an inkling that we would be getting an intense sunset. That seemed to be the norm on other hazy days so I was super excited for what was hopefully to come. I sat down on the beach with my camera and my phone, ready to take some photos and videos.

When the sky started to turn orange, I knew we were in for a treat. When the sun started to descend, I couldn’t believe my eyes in how defined it was in the sky. When it sank past the bridge, I was in awe at the obvious gradient of colour that covered it. I felt like I was looking at a spread from a photography magazine. I had to make sure I wasn’t staring at the sun for prolonged periods of time for obvious reasons.

I only wish I were able to take a photo of just the sun in the sky or the sun over the landscape. But I didn’t want to move from my spot on the beach and risk not making it to another area quick enough. I would rather have some photos than no photos at all. I wanted to return to take alternate photos but was unable to. At this point in the year, it’s too late for conditions that prompt a hazy sky. And just like that, there’s a new addition to my photography bucket list!
