A dramatic sunset and bluebonnets – Ennis, Texas

Post on May 2, 2013 Landscape


Drove around Ennis for the 3rd times this season and thought it was gonna bummed out again then the sky slowly opened up as I passed Andrews road by the lake. Immediately, i noticed the calm water and subtle hues of orange projected on the pond just 20 minutes before sunset. What a timing! It drizzled not long ago.

The scene gradually turned color, from a dull grey sky to an intense red sunset as the sun approached horizon, and the wind conveniently died down (can do low iso). Time to break out the gears!

Quite a change! and it turned out to be a dramatic sunset after all. Furthermore, and finally I got to try out my new (used) Grad ND filter for the first time. Also, there’s a farm house on the other side of the lake, i thought about include it in the frame in landscape orientation but there’s not enough wildflowers on the foreground. It’s a pity that there aren’t much bluebonnets around that area.
