The Photoblog of Jay Williams

Recently I drove up the mountain overlooking Jacksonville, in hopes of photographing a beautiful sunset. Upon arrival, it became apparent to me that things were not going to pan out as I had planned. There was a storm a in the distance, so the clouds blocked any chance of seeing the sunset. Rather than throwing in the towel, I decided to setup my tripod and see what I could photograph, in spite of the weather.

As the evening came to a close, the beautiful blue light of dusk started to appear. It wasn’t very bright, but if you had the shutter open long enough, you could capture the amazing blue hues. To capture this photo, I ended up setting my exposure compensation two stops higher to battle against the haze. And after after some levels and contrast adjustments in Lightroom, I’m quite happy with the result.
