I was shooting a sunset on a beach in Cape Cod and there other photographers out there with me and they were all there to get the shots up to the sun on the horizon. Then I guess they thought the light show was over because by the time I took the second picture in this sequence, everyone else had left. They missed out because your camera’s sensor can pick up plenty of light after the sun has set. You will first have a golden hour and then a blue hour. The second two shots show the early and late stages of the golden hour. The cold wind made me give up before the blue hour.
