I took the long way home to catch the final moments of light at one of my favorite bridges, The Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge. The clouds were thick enough that only an obscured point of light from the sun was shining through. I was not expecting much, but I took a chance that I might get some color shooting back toward the west. In my experience chasing sunsets, I’ve learned that sunsets can change quickly. They could change into a masterpiece or they could just fizzle out. One thing is for sure, you have to be ready regardless of the outcome. Even though sunsets can sometimes be a little underwhelming, they can work. I actually like how these turned out. The mood is not bright and vibrant, but more subdued and remote.
All of these shots were taken within a span of about 15 minutes. The light was getting duller by the second. The scene would have been totally different, if I didn’t arrive when I did. I’m going to stay on the lookout for that vibrant sunset, so Follow and Like my Facebook Page at Shuttering Thru Life to catch my next sunset at the bridge. Thanks for reading!
