There are few things more romantic than a summer sunset. Couples stand on the lighthouse pier at Sodus Point, NY, in awe of a late August sun, as it sets in a hazy pink light, over Lake Ontario.

    Amazing photo…beautiful POV. The moon is wondrous!

  • Thanks Sandra. …but this was the sun, not the moon. It truly was wondrous that evening at sunset, though. We were all in awe. :)

    Nice scene. Like how the sky (haze) magnifies the sun. What focal length lens?

  • Thanks Stephen. I was out on the water in a moving boat at a distance so I wasn’t sure how well the photos I took that evening would turn out. Fortunately, the lake was fairly calm and I was able to take a lot of shots…as it “traveled” from one side of the lighthouse to the other…in my view. The pink sky was awesome too. :)

    Focal length – 250mm
    ISO 320

    Your photos are an extraordinary pleasure to view.Greetings from Italy – Paolo

  • What a nice comment, Paolo …thank you. :) It’s wonderful to be connected to people all over the world through this site…and to see different parts of it through the eyes of photographers everywhere. Some day I would love to visit Italy (the home of my mother’s ancestors) …for now, I enjoy pictures like yours. :)
