Photographers obsess over the golden hour. And there’s a reason for that. The lighting changes drastically (in a good way) and the sky puts up a dramatic show of its own. Have a look at the following image taken by photographer Jeremy Noyes in San Diego:
The image is a long exposure that Noyes took with his Sony A7RIII and Canon 16-35 2.8L II lens with a Sigma converter. Using a Lee 3-stop hard grad filter, he shot a 10 second exposure at 16mm, f/16, and ISO 100.
The palette of colors in this image is truly amazing. Also, while rocks at the bottom of the composition give a calming effect, the motion blur of the clouds makes the image more dynamic. And the reflection of the burning clouds on the water below makes the image even more interesting to look at.
