Edge of Sunset and Twilight

Red sky and blue twilight landscape at Punggol Reservoir – click for larger image

When sunset and twilight converge, you see the different colours of the sky – between red sky and the blue hue of twilight…..

When I first bought a DSLR with the kit lens, I couldn’t figure out why the focus ring keep whirling to focus whenever it was night or early morning scenery. It was only later I discover the importance of prime or fast lens or a lens with a wide aperture. The reason why the camera has a hard time to focus is because during low light conditions, there is not enough light to capture images.  So if you like to shoot early in the morning or evening, a lens with F2.8 aperture or even better F1.8 or F1.4 is a good investment. Don’t need to crank up the ISO too much, resulting in less grainy images.

For this picture, there was no light in forest. Need to use the distance lights on the far left horizon, press the shutter half way to focus, then re-compose. From the news report, this forest you see here will be a future nature park facing the Matilda estate in Punggol.

Enjoy the scenery as you see them now. Something is always changing. In the future , something else always come along. Have a greet weekend!
