It has been extremely windy around here for the last few days. Of course that means it has been very dusty. I mean so dusty that the sun really doesn’t peek through very well except when it is directly overhead. Which means it has been a few days since I have seen the sunset.
Yesterday I took a couple of pictures of the dust shrouded sun, they don’t look as cool as it looked in real life. There must be a trick on how to photograph them to capture that unique look.
The first day when the dust started really filling the air it was late in the day and the horizon was a very unique dusty rose color with a big orange sun. By the time I got my camera the sun was almost completely behind the mountain and I missed the chance to capture that unusual sky. You can see a hint of what it looked like in the picture I did take.
I also snapped a couple of shots of August’s first full moon. The moon was shrouded in the dust, so it was not very bright , but it did give it an orange hue. I cropped the shit out of one of the pictures so you can really see the moon well. It turned out ok, but it is times like that I really wish I had a tripod to get a crisper picture.
Thanks for looking.
