It is always thrilling to be on the beach with a camera around sunset. The cast of the shadows across the waves and bright beams torching the sands in flaming colors are irresistible. The sky show is better than anything seen at home (when you live in a forest) and is a feast for the senses. Needless to say, while at the beach my calendar includes a sunset or two.
When you live five hours from the ocean, it is impossible to make a quick trip to the coast for a quick sunset shoot. However, beautiful sunsets can be found anywhere as Rachel points out, even in Birmingham Alabama ! Her blog post in June of 2014 details where you can find these special sunset locations; Where to find Birmingham's Sunsets: http://www.graspingforobjectivity.com/2014/06/where-to-find-birminghams-sunsets.html
For those of you who live in and around the Magic City, have fun with your safari to shoot the sunsets in Birmingham, Alabama.
