100203 - Old Saybrook Sunset


On Rt. 154 in Old Saybrook is the Old Saybrook Town Beach, one of my favorite places to shoot sunset images. Yet, in the many years I've been taking pictures from this site, I've occasionally seen another photographer, but rarely one with a tripod.

If you are lucky, sunset arrives at the time of low tide. Low tide uncovers a lot of real estate and the water is calm due to its shallow depth. This is ideal for reflecting the sky colors onto the water. The key to this photo is to have the tripod low to the ground and a small lens aperture so that everything is in sharp focus.

The image was shot with a Pentax 67II and 55-90mm f/4.5, Fuji Velvia, Gitzo tripod.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
