Mississippi River

Lone Star by Dennis Bernhard

Lone Star

Right before I packed up and left this spot, this lone star (maybe it's a planet or something else, I don't really know) in the sky caught my eye. I was intrigued by the bright light in the sky over the fading sunset and thought it would make an interesting vertical shot.

Ball Of Orange by Dennis Bernhard

Ball Of Orange

This is my favorite still from the time-lapse I posted on Monday. It took a lot of calculating, but I was able to figure out how to get the sun to fit right in between the gap in the bridge.

I'm totally lying. This was complete luck. But I do love how this firey ball of orange slides perfectly through the gap in the bridge. The lens flare coming off the left side and the train going across the bridge.

It's always good to understand what you are doing and have skill. It's sometimes better to just get lucky.

Mississippi River Sunset by Dennis Bernhard

Mississippi River Sunset

At the end of the time-lapse the sky was still putting on an amazing show.

The deep orange of the horizon reached toward the dark blue of the sky. 

The clouds stretched across the sky. 

The river was rushing by. 

The bridge began to light up with bright white lights. 

There was one more photo waiting to be captured.
