It’s not the sunset itself that is offers the best subject matter.
Nature Photography Tips from Mark S. Carlson: Often times the best sunset photos are made right after sunset, especially if it’s partly cloudy. Why? Because the light can be very dramatic and with a body of water for reflection plus a few clouds reflecting the colorful afterglow. It’s like enjoying dessert after dinner!
The photograph above was taken after a storm during twilight at Lake Stella in Alger County, Michigan.
