Landscape Photography – Late Evening in Texas

We have some of the most beautiful evenings here in Southeast Texas. The breeze from the Gulf brings just enough moisture this time of year to create a few high clouds in the late evening. The sun slowly sets and the sky darkens to this beautiful shade of purple.

  1. Wowie zowie! That’s gorgeous! And no PP! Remarkable (not remarkable that you didn’t PP, remarkable what Mother Nature gives us sometimes!)

    And your new masthead image is superb.

    • It was an incredible display last weekend. The wind was from the south bringing moisture from the gulf and meeting a small cold front coming down from the north. The purple just kept getting deeper and deeper until the sun finally set. I’ve got one more image to post on Thursday from this shoot.

      BTW – I did shoot this at -1 EV for better color saturation and a dark silhouette.


  2. I just discovered you site, and I must thank you for sharing your great work.
    As for this picture, I must say it is really something. Well done!

    Thank you also for stating how the shot was taken, etc.. very helpful to beginners like me.

  3. I should have gone outside last night but I couldn’t tear myself away from the superbowl or the ads. There are a couple blogs I follow where the Canon 10-22 is used. Its a marvelous lens and I love the color saturation in this photo.
