Not far from the Bay View State Park in Mt Vernon where I was camping, there’s an estuary and bike trail, perfect for hiking and in my case taking pictures at sundown. As you can see, this a clear view of the sun going down, it’s golden light filtering across an open field, quiet, with almost no one around. I took my time taking a series of pictures, this one took a while to get just right in post. I wanted that feeling of light, strong in places but weakening, just before the sun finally dips below the horizon. Hope restores with the rise and before the setting of the sun. I included an unedited version in the gallery for comparison purposes.
About My Prints: I use only Canon Lucia inks for printing which are archival. In addition to the printing papers, any future matting and framing materials used, if archival too (with reasonable care), will last 100 years or more. The papers I use almost exclusively are Canson Fine Art Papers and also do not contain brightening agents that decay over time. For this image, the paper I used is the Canson Baryta Prestige 11, an absolutely beautiful, wide tonal range paper.
