Hello friends! I was just north of Houston, Texas, this weekend for the beautiful wedding of my beautiful cousin. North of Houston is a lake called Lake Conroe. I couldn’t resist stopping by and finding the perfect place for a sunset shot over the lake. I wish the sky would’ve been more dramatic but I’m really happy with how the image turned out!
(Sorry for the delay in the post, I was traveling all weekend and didn’t have a way of getting the post up)
For the photographers: The goal here was trying to find an interesting foreground element. Without the planter on the right I would’ve just had a dock and a sunset, which isn’t as interesting. Always look in the fore-, middle-, and background of your image to make sure it’s interesting all the way through. This was a simple snap from my Sony a7rII with the Sony 16-35mm attached zoomed to somewhere between 20-24mm. I shot it at f16 so the sun would burst a little bit, but of course I got some weird-looking lens flares because of how dirty my lens was, oh well!
