As Day Folds to Night…

As day folds to night We setup at the tables at the edge of the cliff and watched the lovely sunset whilst dining…

Ngumban Cliff Setting

Ngumban Cliff Setting

NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 70 mm, 2.5 sec at f/16, ISO 100 x 12 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

I took twenty three source frames for this stitched panorama at 5:20PM just as the sun began to set and the pastels started to take over the sky. The light was changing quickly and dramatically so I needed to repeat a number of the frames with different settings to compensate for the changes. In the end I used only twelve (12) of the frames for this final panorama. Besides selecting the “better” frames I also ignored all the frames on the left (I was taking this sequence of shots from right to left – starting pointing away from the setting sun and ending towards the setting sun).

We’re heading into night and the rich twilight colours and soft beautiful light envelop the landscape.

Sometimes it’s the simplest of compositions that work best. The colour on the horizon was so rich and spectacular we could only sit in awe and wonder as we ate and watched the colour show till it faded into the darkness of night.
