My Friend Ray

Photography is as much about composition and lighting as it is timing. Sunsets present a particularly fun challenge because you are trying to get a glimpse of the sun just as it greets the horizon line, a moment which only last seconds and most often is obscured by fog. I would estimate that my usable vs unusable ratio is 1:25, only getting what I consider a fine art quality shot one out of every twenty five attempts. On this particular evening a dense cloud cover stretched all the way to the horizon, but left a peek hole where it met the ocean. I had not intended on capturing a starburst shot this night but with the natural filtering effect of that small window in the clouds the moment begged for it.
